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.

    " 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. "

    " 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 "
