Popular children’s author Marcella Lavender has been murdered, and there’s only one person the Melbourne police can turn to: Phryne Fisher, socialite detective. Going undercover as a fashion reporter for Women’s Choice magazine, Phryne soon finds that Lavender was anything but universally beloved. Complicating matters, Phryne’s lover, Lin Chung, has gone missing while on a silk-buying trip to Shanghai, and his disapproving family wants nothing to do with her assistance. Can Phryne rescue her man and finger the killer?
