This series is based on novels written by Kerry Greewood. Any time Detective John ‘Jack’ Robinson learns about a murder, Phryne Fisher is right behind him looking for clues. Jack has help from his partner Hugh Collins. Phryne has help from Dorothy ‘Dot’ Williams, Mr. Butler, Bert, Cec and Dr. Mac. An act at a magic show kills a woman. A woman is killed outside an Air Force base. An Italian grandmother is killed in her restaurant kitchen. A boy living on the street goes missing and his brother needs help finding him. Phryne’s Aunt Prudence opens her home to a psychiatrist and natural healer. A hotel concierge falls to his death. A woman is murdered at a tennis club. A man who wants to kill Phryne’s father escapes from a hospital.
All these events take place in the 20’s. It’s the flapper age and Phryne doesn’t hesitate to dress in the latest fashions. I liked the clothing, hairstyles and the cars. The plots and the acting are good too. Each episode is different and interesting. 4* (I really liked this series)
