Travelling at high speed in her beloved Hispano-Suiza, accompanied by her maid and trusted companion, Dot; her two adoptive daughters, Jane and Ruth; and their dog, Molly, The Hon Miss Phryne Fisher is off to Queenscliff. She'd promised everyone a nice holiday by the sea with absolutely no murders, but when they arrive at their rented accommodation that doesn't seem likely at all. An empty house, a gang of teenage louts, a fisherboy saved, and the mystery of a missing butler and his wife seem to lead inexorably towards a hunt for buried treasure by the sea. But what information might the curious Surrealists be able to contribute? Phryne knows to what depths people will sink for greed but with a glass of champagne in one hand and a pearl-handled Beretta in the other, no-one is getting past her.

    " Another good book in the Phrynne Fisher series. This one takes place at a seaside resort. Phyrnne and her family have leased a house for the holidays. Unfortunately, when they arrive there is no one to greet them. The cook and butler have disappeared. The holiday turns out to be a working one when she has to solve several mysteries. "

    " It took me a while to get into this book about Phryne Fisher, a private detective flapper who is quite the woman and someone I think I would like personally. But I didn't feel that the mystery was particularly strong here. In fact, I wasn't altogether certain what the mystery was. When she arrives at the vacation home she's borrowing, the caretakers are not only missing but appear to have scarpered off. Only they left their beloved dog. Meanwhile, there is no cook, plenty of surrealists and lots of free flowing alcohol. Strong narration here but weak story. I think I would like to start with earlier books and learn more about this strong woman who is well aware of her sexuality and doesn't hesitate to use it. She is also well aware of her brains and her money and doesn't stint on those either! "

    " The inimitable Phryne Fisher gets up to many of her usual tricks while on holiday at the seaside. The omitted tricks, like the absent members of the usual cast of characters, are not much missed in the swirl of events. A worthy entry in the series. "

    " I love Phryne and her household. This time Phryne and her daughters, and of course with Dot, head to the shore for a vacation. Things never go easy for this group, but the mystery is solved, of course, and they make new friends. Another good episode in this series. "
