Phryne Fisher is a glamorous and thoroughly modern woman of the 1920s. She sashays through the back lanes and jazz clubs of Melbourne, fighting injustice with her pearl handled pistol and her dagger-sharp wit. Leaving a trail of admirers in her wake, Phryne makes sure she enjoys every moment of her lucky life. But behind the faÃƒÂ§ade of elegance and charm are the scars of the past which drive Phryne to find justice for those who can't help themselves and to pursue the truth of her own dark history. Based on the novels of Australian author Kerry Greenwood.
