Summary

Murder in the Telephone Exchange stars feisty young "hello girl" Maggie Byrnes. When an unpopular colleague at Melbourne Central is murdered - her head bashed in with a buttinsky, a piece of equipment used to listen in on phone calls - Maggie resolves to turn sleuth. Some of her co-workers are acting strangely, and Maggie is convinced she has a better chance of figuring out the killer's identity than the rather stodgy police team assigned to the case, who seem to think she herself might have had something to do with it. But then one of her friends is murdered too, and it looks like Maggie might be next.
