To the accompaniment of heavenly choirs singing, the fearless Miss Phryne Fisher returns in her 20th adventure with musical score in hand.

The divine Phryne Fisher returns in the fifteenth seductive instalment in the classic Phryne Fisher whodunnit series. Who are you?­' asked the doctor. You are not the standard cruise passenger, I can tell you that.­' Thank you,­' said Phryne in a self-­possessed manner. You are correct. I am a lot of things, some of which do not concern you, but mostly I am Phryne Fisher.­' The nice men at P'O are worried.
