Publisher's Summary

The divine Phryne Fisher returns in the 15th seductive installment in the classic Phryne Fisher whodunnit series. This one includes shipboard romances, champagne cocktails, erotic photographers, jealous husbands, mickey finns, blackmail, and attempted murder.A succession of jewelry thefts from first-class passengers is hardly the best advertisement for a cruise liner, particularly when it is likely that it is a passenger who is doing the stealing. Phryne Fisher, with her Lulu bob, green eyes, Cupid's bow lips and Chanel traveling suits, is exactly the sort of elegant sleuth to take on a ring of jewelry thieves on the high seas - or at least, aboard the SS Hinemoa on a luxury cruise to New Zealand. With the Maharani - the Great Queen of Sapphires - as the bait, Phryne rises magnificently to the challenge.


What the Critics Say

"Brimming with glamour, high life, and a hint of debauchery, Greenwood's series delivers a literary glass of champagne, lifting readers' spirits while tickling their fancies." (Booklist)

Stylish cruise ship mystery with unusual heroine

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and have read several others now in the series. The heroine is a very unusual, brave single woman who rose from rags to riches and leads a unique household and life. Original mystery series set in 1920's Australia.

Phryne Fisher is a delight!

This is part of the Phyrne Fisher series. Offers a fascinating look into Turn of the Century Australia, with a plucky, independent heroine.
