Storyline

Aunt Prudence, in gratitude to Dr Samuels for helping her through the death of son Arthur, avails her home as temporary consulting rooms, only for it to quickly mushroom into a sanatorium for rich women. Chief among the modern treatments, a vaginal vibrator, which electrocutes one of the patients. The deliberately frayed wire points to murder. With Dr Samuels (who only targets rich women) as the prime suspect, Jack helps Phryne sift through a morass of details. With Hugh away fishing (getting his head together), Constable Martin steps in - an eager beaver at Jack's side who staunchly eschews any help from women. Written by statmanjeff
