Publishers Description: Dot unfolded the note. He says that his married couple will look after the divine Miss Fisher ...Ill leave out a bit ...their name is Johnson and they seem very reliable. Phryne got the door open at last. She stepped into the hall. I think he was mistaken about that, she commented...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. Shed promised everyone a nice holiday by the sea with absolutely no murders, but when they arrive at their rented accommodation that doesnt 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... Although Miss Fisher as usual powers through this newest case with the grace, poise and unerring confidence granted by her wealth and impeccable style, the sense of underlying tension is palpable, leaving one in anticipation of the next instalment. - The Age (Murder on a Midsummer Night)
