The circus is in town, and St Kilda is having its first Flower Festival, which includes a parade. And who should be Queen of said Flowers but the Honourable Phryne Fisher? She has dresses to purchase, cinemas to visit, and agreeable cocktails to drink.

One of her flower maidens, however, is unstable and has vanished. Phryne investigates through the underworld with the help of Bert, Cec, and her little beretta. She is also assisted in this task by an old flame from Orkney, the owner of the most exclusive brothel in St Kilda, and several elephants.

But when her own adopted daughter Ruth goes missing, Phryne is determined that nothing will stand in the way of her retrieving her lost child.


One of Phryne Fisher's flower maidens has vanished during the Flower Parade. And so, Phryne is off to investigate aided by Bert and Cec and her trusty little beretta, in this 14th book in the Phryne Fisher series.

This series about Phryne Fisher is interesting and enjoyable, and some books are better than others. This book was especially fun, as it explored both a current mystery and a past one, and solved them both most satisfactorily. Phryne Fisher is a fascinating and resourceful character, and she has connections with all sorts of other people when she needs help. Like all series, this series is most enjoyable when the books are read in order.
