Book Synopsis

Blurb from the book:

The utterly delightful Phryne Fisher makes her very welcome appearance as St Kilda's Queen of the Flowers. But when a body washes up on the beach, she must leave the carnival and find the killer. This is the fourteenth seductive installment in the classic Phryne Fisher whodunnit series.

With more than a dash of glamour and serious helpings of style, the witty and courageous Phryne Fisher returns.

In 1928 St Kilda's streets hang with fairy lights. Magic shows, marionettes, tea dances, tango competitions, lifesaving demonstrations, lantern shows, and picnics on the beach are all part of the Flower Parade.

And who else should be chosen to be Queen of the Flowers but the gorgeous, charming and terribly fashionable Hon Phryne Fisher? Phryne needs a new dress and a swimming costume but she also needs a lot of courage to confront her problems: a missing daughter, the return of an old lover, and a young woman found drowned at the beach at Elwood.
