This fourth volume of The Greatest Cape continues the history of the strange little town by the sea. Pert and Rosella may have grown up and become respectable while Fenestra is enjoying a rather sad retirement among the jungle cannibals, but June and Bertronella are carrying on the family tradition of being thoroughly annoying and interfering in things that don't concern them.

Originally intended as a trilogy, the Greatest Cape series has now become a quartet of novels. Turnstone is a sequel to The Black Joke, The Bernadette and Rio Sagrado, and once again the little town by the sea is torn apart by sinister events. Pert and Rosella may be grown up and respectable now, while the mercurial Fenestra has retired to live with cannibals in the jungle, but other members of their families have taken up the torch. The entertaining June and Bertie continue their career of mayhem, leading a strike at school, trying to invent manned flight (well, girled flight, to be strictly accurate) and generally interfering in things that don't concern them. Even their wit and quirky charm is not enough to keep them out of trouble, though, and things get worse before they get better. A LOT worse!
