Known for her dagger-sharp wit and pearl-handled pistol, fledgling detective Phryne Fisher fights injustice in the back lanes and jazz clubs of 1920’s Melbourne. Tasmanian actress Essie Davis (The Babadook, Game of Thrones) brings to life the impish socialite at the center of this marvelously seductive Australian adaptation of Kerry Greenwood’s series of detective novels, know collectively as Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries.
Investigating Murdoch Foyle leads Phryne to a murdered antiques dealer and a case involving Egyptology and reincarnation. With her closest friends in grave danger, can Phryne finally defeat her arch-nemesis and solve the mystery that has haunted her for years?
Almost as soon as the Honourable Miss Phryne Fisher disembarks at Melbourne, she finds herself embroiled in a mystery. Between investigating a cocaine smuggling ring, a back alley abortionist, and the poisoning of a friend's husband, Phryne's life is one adventure after another. But of course she finds time for a romantic encounter with a dashing Russian dancer.
Phryne Fisher is on the scene when a young man is found dead in a bookshop. Miss Fisher is willing to bet her hat that it is a case of poisoning. Phryne investigates murder, alchemy, and Zionism alongside Detective Inspector Jack Robinson.
