'It's not every day a handsome young man appears on your doorstep to ask if you're a respectable womana' Miss Ada Delroy and her famous vaudeville troupe stormed five continents, enchanting royalty, miners and larrikins alike with her wit, illusions, and breathtaking dances. 'I had a diamond pendant near as big as an emu egg off the Maharajah of What's-His-Name. They named a racehorse after me, and a pigeon and a potato soup on an Orient steamship.' Under the costume made from 100 yards of billowing silk was a woman who couldn't help being both fabulous and disreputable. Down on her luck in a rented room in Melbourne, morphia cocktail in hand, Ada receives a visitor. Is she ready to share her secrets?

After not having read about book in first person for a while, I found it hard to start reading this novel. But when I finally got into this novel it was quiet enjoyable with it cooky characters.
