Mystery Woman Sleuth
The divine Phryne Fisher returns in the fifteenth seductive
instalment in the classic Phryne Fisher whodunnit series.
Who are you?' asked the doctor. You are not the standard
cruise passenger, I can tell you that.'
Thank you,' said Phryne in a self-possessed manner. You are
correct. I am a lot of things, some of which do not concern
you, but mostly I am Phryne Fisher.'
The nice men at P&O are worried. A succession of jewellery
thefts from first class passengers is hardly the best
advertisement for their cruise liners, 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 travelling suits, is exactly the sort of
elegant sleuth to take on a ring of jewellery thieves
aboard 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.
There are shipboard romances, champagne cocktails, erotic
photographers, jealous husbands, mickey finns, blackmail
and attempted murder, all before the thieves find out - as
have countless love-smitten men before them - that where
the glamorous and intelligent Phryne is involved,
resistance is futile.
