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)

Brilliant period drama thriller

When I began to listen to this audiobook,I knew is was a winner.It has everything,a strong lead character,loads of intrigue with a touch of risk!
It is a superb thriller or murder mystery and the narrator was fantastic.
I highly recommend this audiobook and is I feel superior to other leading 1920s books.It reminds me of the very best of Agatha Christie with spice,and hot spice!
Brilliant listen,superb period piece.At the end the author speaks about why she wrote this book and this even enhances the experiences.
