Publisher's Summary

In Phryne's third adventure, Phryne is off to Ballarat for a week of fabulousness, but the sedate journey by train turns out to be far from the restful trip she was planning. What was planned as a restful country sojourn turns into the stuff of nightmares: a young girl who can't remember anything, rumours of vile white slavery, and the body of an old woman missing her emerald rings. And Phryne is at the centre, working through the clues to arrive at the incredible truth before another murder is committed. Fortunately, Phryne can still find a little time for a discreet dalliance and the delicious diversion of that rowing team of young men.

What the Critics Say

"This latest mystery to feature the irrepressible Phryne Fisher, Melbourne's uninhibited 1920s private detective, begins with Phryne saving the lives of a group of travelers when someone chloroforms their train compartments. Unfortunately, an elderly woman is discovered missing and then found murdered. It's left to Phryne to unmask the killer while rescuing a young girl who suffers from amnesia. This series continues to offer a feisty main character and a vividly created and definitely unusual historical setting - the flapper Down Under." (Booklist)

Brilliant

Another great story by Kerry Greenwood, narrated by Stephanie Daniel is a pleasure to listen too. No mis-pronunciation of words, which is a blessing in itself. The story keeps you hooked and you want to find out what happens next.
