Murder in WilliamstownKerry Greenwood
Meanwhile, Dot begins to fear that her fiance, newly promoted Sergeant Hugh Collins, has gone cold on their wedding. And Phryne's clever daughters Ruth and Jane begin their own investigation into suspiciously dwindling funds when they are sent to help at the Blind Institute.

With some unlikely assistance, Phryne is in a race against time to save a pair of young lovers from disgrace and death.
