Summary
"The elegant Miss Phryne Fisher returns in this scintillating collection, featuring four new stories The Honourable Phryne Fisher-she of the Lulu bob, cupid's bow lips, diamante garters, and pearl-handled pistol-is the 1920s' most elegant and irrepressible sleuth. Miss Phryne Fisher is up to her stunning green eyes in intriguing crime in each of these entertaining, fun, and compulsively readable stories. Whether sniffing out the whereabouts of a priceless pilfered book, an heirloom locket, or a missing eight-year-old girl, Miss Fisher proves herself more than equal to the task-and always fashionably attired. With the ever-loyal Dot, the ingenious Mr. Butler, and all of Phryne's friends and household, the action is as fast as Phryne's wit and logic"-- Provided by publisher.
