The circus is in town for St Kilda's 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. However, one of her flower maidens is unstable and has vanished. So Phryne investigates, trudging through the underworld with the help of Bert, Cec, her little beretta, 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. Kerry Greenwood has written more than 40 novels, six nonfiction books, a number of plays, and is an award-winning children's writer. Winner of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Crime Writers' Association of Australia in 2003, she has written 16 books in this series with no sign yet of hanging up Miss Fisher's pearl-handled pistol.

Review quote

"Australia, 1928. Phryne Fisher, the flamboyant flapper and amateur sleuth, has been chosen to be Queen of the Flowers for this year's Flower Parade. But, as loyal readers of this long-running series know, Phryne can't seem to do anything without landing herself in the midst of a mystery...This is a consistently strong series that shows no signs of running out of steam." --"Booklist "of "Queen of the Flowers" "Crime strikes close to home in this latest installment of Greenwood's charming series ("The Castlemaine Murders," etc.) featuring 1920s Aussie amateur sleuth, Phryne Fisher...The engaging cast of familiar supporting characters--including Phryne's maid, Dot, and her Chinese lover, Lin Chung--will delight longtime fans, but newcomers who like their crime on the lighter side can jump in without any trouble." -"Publishers Weekly" of "Queen of the Flowers"
