Another Great Entry in the Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries Series …

Especially when it is likely that a passenger is the thief.Phryne Fisher, with her Lulu bob, green eyes, cupid’s bow lips, and sense of the ends justifying the means, is just the person to mingle seamlessly with the upper classes and take on a case of theft on the high seas—or at least on the S.S. Hinemoa—on a luxury cruise to New Zealand, carrying the Great Queen of Sapphires, the Maharani, as bait.
