Phryne is bored with all her riches and comforts so she jumps at the chance to go help an old friend at the circus. She goes undercover as a trick rider named Fern. Amazingly, this time she is all on her own. Phryne doesn't take any of her normal entourage with her and she goes mad trying to cope without them. She also learns how mean people are when you are not so rich and powerful. This confused me a lot. Phryne grew up poor. I know her life has been different for quite awhile, but we are always made to believe she enjoys the coarser things in life also. That she is an independent woman who can take care of herself. Here, she just floundered like a fish out of water.

Of course there was sex (clown sex be forewarned), violence, mystery and mayhem. The mystery fell a little short for me, but it wasn't bad. I just couldn't get over the horrible Phryne Fisher.
