The Honourable Miss Phryne Fisher is feeling dull. But is shebored enough to leave her identity, her home and family behind and join Farrell's Circus and Wild Beast Show? There have beenstrange things happening at the circus. And when Phryne is asked by her friends - Samson the Strong Man, Alan the carousel operator and Doreen the Snake Woman - to help them, curiosity gets the better of her. Peeling off her wealth and privilege, Phryne takes a job as a trickhorse-rider, wearing hand-me-down clothes and a new name. Someone seems determined to see the circus fail and Phryne must find out who that might be and why they want it badly enough to resort to poison, assault and murder. Diving into the dangerous underworld of 1920s Melbourne and the wild, eccentric life under the big top, Phryne proves her courage and ingenuity yet again, aided only by her quick intelligence, an oddly attractive clown, and a stout and helpful bear.

Listener Opinions

    " Phryne Fisher is entertaining - a good yarn and relaxing to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 2/12/2014

    " Our marvelous hero needs to do something different - and working in a circus provides a diversion. In the end she is saved by her talent for friendship, rather than her wealth or competency. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 2/2/2014

    " This is the second of these in a row where Dot was mostly absent. I think she adds an important balance to Phryne. "

    " For some reason did not click. Felt like the heroine did close to nothing and the ending felt rushed "

    " set at the end of the 20's and early 30's in Australia. Phrine the main character has to go undercover in a 3rd rate traveling circus to find out why there are accidents at every stop along the way. She trains as a trick rider on a horse. She finds an old love, a new love and why and who "done it". She is nearly raped and is badly beaten along the way. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Phoebe | 1/17/2014

    " I think this is the first of the Phryne Fisher books I didn't enjoy as much as the previous. I'm looking forward to Ruddy Gore. This one just didn't appeal, I guess. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 1/11/2014

    " This one was a little disconcerting. Phryne seems to lose her confidence and isn't quite the bold, adventurous Phryne that we know from her other books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole Hurley-Moore | 12/11/2013

    " I really adore the Phryne Fisher mysteries but this one wasn't my favourite. But then again, maybe it's just that I have an irrational fear of clowns and circuses. Still enjoyable but not as fabulous as all the others. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ashley | 11/30/2013

    " Australian mystery series, pre-WWII, and absolutely addictive. I'll read anything Greenwood writes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary: Harry Dresden's Love Slave | 11/28/2013

    " Still loving this series. There's a pretty racy sex scene in this book for a mystery book. Someone who reads a lot of romance probably won't find it too graphic. But someone used to reading cozies might be a little put off. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joy | 9/13/2013

    " Loved this book. It was such a nice change to see Phryne taken outside of her comfort zone. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Terri | 3/13/2013

    " Phryne Fisher is bored and when friends come from the circus and ask her to investigate some mysterious goings on there, she agrees. She goes under cover as a trick rider and learns there are no secrets in the circus but there are some interesting characters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Trish | 11/18/2012

    " Not as good as some she's written. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lemonitsa | 8/17/2012

    " This is my least fave Phryne book of the one's I've read so far. (1-5, 12, 17) Tonight I start Ruddy Gore. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 6/5/2012

    " Another great installation in the series! I liked the suspense of the story and adding to it was the back drop of the circus. The circus and all its players added to this story. Leave it to good old Phryne Fisher to solve another crime!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Veronica Johnson | 5/1/2012

    " More sex and violence (and sexual violence) than I've encountered in other Phryne books - definitely not my favorite of the series. I prefer the ones where her loyal companions (Dot, adopted daughters, et. al.) are present. "
