Her lover, Lin Chung, has managed to settle a feud with another Chinese immigrant family and wants to search for a large quantity of gold which went missing in the area of Castlemaine about the time the body was mummified in the same area. Phryne's sister, Eliza, is staying with her as she has fallen out with their father but they are not getting on too well.
This is an intriguing and well plotted mystery. I found the insight into Chinese customs fascinating and I loved the ways Lin Chung dealt with some of his distant relatives' problems in Castlemaine. I liked the way past and present are linked in the story and the glimpse the reader gets of life in the nineteenth century during the gold rush.
I find this series an entertaining and absorbing read. I think the characters are well drawn and I like the touches of humour and the ways in which the series characters are developing especially Phryne herself. I recommend this series to anyone who enjoys Carola Dunn's Daisy Dalrymple series.
I loved it and it even made me laugh. I wish she would write some more now that she it getting better.
