This novel is another installment in this lovely series. The focus is back on Phryne and her little family, and less on Lin and the chinese community. Many old friends from other books make happy cameos, and Phryne is at her fabulous best saving lives and sorting out messes. The theme of fathers and family is also explored in an interesting way.

I am going through all of the Miss Fisher Mysteries in order and I really liked the story in this one. All of them have been thoroughly enjoyable books and the performance by Stephanie Daniels is exceptional.

Is there anything you would change about this book?
yes, please try and make accents used sound more authentic, it really distracts when they are laboured and don't sound right!
Another of Kerry Greenwood's delightful and sometimes scary books centring on private detective Phryne Fisher. Perhaps there were a few too many characters in this one, but all were well-drawn, with a place in the colourful world of circus and carnival in the St Kilda of 1928. Phryne is Queen of the Flowers in a version of an actual event in that year, but leading up to that is a story of broken family relationships, missing girls and some dastardly figures of crime and corruption. I enjoyed it all thoroughly, especially as read by Stephanie Daniel.
