I do so enjoy Kerry Greenwoods feisty heroine and this time it on board a good old P&O liner. So a larger than usual locked room mystery as no can leave! With her faithful maid and new friends she tangles with a killer and triumphs for the emancipated woman of the early twentieth century as per usual. With her fabulous wardrobe and spakling wit Miss Fisher wins again.

Phryne Fisher is not looking forward to Mr and Mrs Butler going away for a fortnight while she has her sister, Eliza and her partner Alice staying with her. Fearing that she will have a disorganised and noisy time of it she decides to accept a request from P&O to go on a cruise to see if she can discover who is stealing passengers' jewellery.

She takes her companion, Dot Williams with her, and looks forward to a quiet two weeks with a little light detecting on the side. When she arrives on board she is given a fabulous sapphire necklace to wear so that she can act as bait for the thief and she is seated at a table with a group of passengers who have been on previous cruises when robberies have taken place. Dot, meanwhile eats with the servants and crew so that she can find out whether there is anyone suspicious.

This is a fascinating story with plenty of suspects and some intriguing relationships between passengers and crew. I loved the descriptions of life on board a cruise ship and the way the relationships between the characters are brought to life. The book is well written with sparkling dialogue and many humorous touches. Many of the characters will find their lives have changed - for better or worse - before the end of the story when the villains are unmasked.

This started off well but gradually became less entertaining and less exciting. A lot of unnecessary material was added which did not enhance the story although some of it was of interest.

Fryne is my heroine. She's fabulous. A good read, a bit different from usual, as set on a boat, without some of the usual characters.

I like all Phryne Fisher books; this one was slightly less good. The murder was an incidental episode towards the end of the book, not the main feature as in other books, also the victim was an incidental character whom nobody liked. So the title was not quite apt. However, I shall definitely buy more of these books, I am working my way through the series and also have the DVD which is brilliant.

I feel that I have been on a cruise and am now familiar with the coast of New Zealand. I have laughed out loud at the brilliant observations and have admired the well constructed sentences. This is apart from enjoying the plot and not least Miss phrynne.
