Death by Water by Kerry Greenwood
Book DescriptionThe nice men at P+O are worried. A succession of jewellery thefts from first class passengers is hardly the best advertisement for their cruise liners, particularly when it is likely that it is a passenger who is doing the stealing. Phryne Fisher, with her Lulu bob, green eyes, Cupid's bow lips and Chanel travelling suits, is exactly the sort of elegant sleuth to take on a ring of jewellery thieves aboard the high seas - or at least, aboard the SS Hinemoa on a luxury cruise to New Zealand. With the Maharani - the Great Queen of Sapphires - as the bait, Phryne rises magnificently to the challenge. There are shipboard romances, champagne cocktails, erotic photographers, jealous husbands, mickey finns, blackmail and attempted murder, all before the thieves find out - as countless love-smitten men have before them - that where the glamorous and intelligent Phryne is involved, resistance is futile.

Death By Water is the fifteenth book in the popular Phryne Fisher series by Australian author, Kerry Greenwood. This instalment is a version of closed room mystery, with the closed room being the First Class section of the P&O liner SS Hinemoa on a voyage from Melbourne to New Zealand. Phryne accepts an invitation from P&O to help them catch a jewel thief who has managed to boldly lift diamonds, pearls and emeralds from passengers on three separate cruises, once on a crowded dance floor. Dot goes along as a companion, but is grateful to eat in the second class dining room, which excuses her from eating with the upper classes and allows her to find out what the crew, service personnel and musicians are saying. Phryne becomes bait with a large sapphire pendant gracing her cleavage. The large and varied cast is involved in blackmail, jewel theft and revenge killing; there is talk of frozen ships and the Titanic sinking; Dot and Phryne go to...
