Synopsis

The Honourable Miss Phryne Fisher – our lady sleuth  -  sashays through  the back streets, jazz clubs  and divine mansions of the 1920s, fighting injustice with her pearl-handled pistol and her dagger sharp wit.  Leaving a trail of admirers in her wake, our thoroughly modern heroine enjoys life and ruffles feathers, while solving all manner of mysteries along the way.

Aided by Dot, the sweetest of maids, the somewhat reluctant Detective Inspector Jack Robinson and not forgetting society matron, Aunt Prudence of course, Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries is a classic who-dunnit murder-mystery series – and one classy offering!

Phryne ( pronounced fry-nee) is a glamorous woman, ahead of her time on many social issues ,with an acquired taste for the best  in life - created by  author Kerry Greenwood.

Every Cloud Productions has brought Miss Fisher to life in this thoroughly captivating and sumptuous series, that stars award-winning stage and film actress Essie Davis as the engaging and frankly gorgeous Phryne.

A soundtrack for the series is commercially available for licence and features a selection of 18 atmospheric original and jazz-era inspired tracks.
