If you haven't had the privilege, allow us to introduce you to the Honorable Phryne (pronounced FRY-nee) Fisher! Beautiful and brilliant, with a nose for trouble, Phryne abandons her dull aristocratic life in post-World War I London for Melbourne, Australia, where she quickly establishes herself as the city's preeminent lady detective. Along the way she causes quite a stir, with her fast cars, handsome lovers, and impeccable style! We're offering the first three volumes of Kerry Greenwood's series: Cocaine Blues, in which Miss Fisher investigates a poisoning and becomes entangled in a drug smuggling ring; Flying Too High finds Phryne juggling a murder and a kidnapping; and in Murder on the Ballarat Train, Miss Fisher's railway holiday is upended by theft, murder, and suspicions of slavery. And though we're often wary of screen adaptations of books, we guarantee you'll adore the blockbuster TV series Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, starring the effervescent Essie Davis as Phryne and replete with mystery, romance, humor...and plenty of gorgeous Jazz Age costumes!
