Don’t miss the latest Ovation news
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.
When the widow of artist Pierre Sarcelle pays a visit, Phryne is reminded of the time she spent in Paris. Ten years earlier, Phryne had posed for the renowned painter. Meanwhile, Bert and Cec witness a fellow war veteran die in a hit and run car accident. Phryne's friends suspect that it was no accident and ask for the sleuth to investigate the murder.
Aunt Prudence's chambermaid is found strangled and floating in the swimming pool, the day before cousin Guy's engagement party. Phryne's own family falls under suspicion. The daring Miss Fisher rushes to the scene for a spot of detection and chance to appear as Cleopatra at the fancy dress ball.
