In 1928, the tony Melbourne suburb of St. Kilda is inaugurating its Flower Festival. The streets are hung with fairy lights, and tea dances, yacht races, tango competitions, lantern shows, and picnics on the beach are all on the schedule of events. Who but the inestimable Phryne Fisher could reign over it all, as Queen of the Flowers? 

Unfortunately, where Phryne is involved it seems trouble is never far behind. When one of her flower maidens vanishes, followed by Phryne's adopted daughter, Ruth, the game is once more afoot. Elephants, old lovers, prostitutes and ne'er do wells be warned: Miss Fisher may be Queen of the Flowers, but she also packs a pearl-handled .38.

“The delightfully outré heroine is always a pleasure to revisit.” — Kirkus Reviews
