Publisher's Summary

Travelling at high speed in her beloved Hispano-Suiza, accompanied by her maid and trusted companion, Dot; her two adoptive daughters, Jane and Ruth; and their dog, Molly, The Hon Miss Phryne Fisher is off to Queenscliff. She'd promised everyone a nice holiday by the sea with absolutely no murders, but when they arrive at their rented accommodation that doesn't seem likely at all. An empty house, a gang of teenage louts, a fisherboy saved, and the mystery of a missing butler and his wife seem to lead inexorably towards a hunt for buried treasure by the sea. But what information might the curious Surrealists be able to contribute? Phryne knows to what depths people will sink for greed but with a glass of champagne in one hand and a pearl-handled Beretta in the other, no-one is getting past her.

Solve another case with Phryne Fisher.

    Story
    "Phryne up to her usual standard"

    Phryne takes herself and Dot, her companion, and Ruth and Jane, her two adopted daughters down to Queenscliff for a summer holiday in a borrowed house while her house in Melbourne is being renovated under the watchful eyes of the Butlers. When she arrives, the Johnsons, the caretaker couple who belong to the house are not there and neither is there furniture. The kitchen of the house has been stripped of food and no-one knows where the Johnsons have gone. In the course of finding the missing couple, Phryne gets involved with a film crew, a surrealist party, a treasure hunt and a rum smuggling gang.

    This is another great offering from Kerry Greenwood. I wondered how I would like a Fisher audiobook - I have read all the others in hard copy - but found I thoroughly enjoyed it. Stephanie Daniel performs the story well. All in all good value for money.
