The Honorable Miss Phryne Fisher is a thoroughly modern woman of the late 1920s. The glamorous detective goes about her work in the back alleys, jazz clubs, and shady markets of Melbourne with a pistol close at hand-and, more often than not, a male admirer even closer. Ignoring the dangers all around her, she seems to glide through life determined to enjoy every moment. Tonight: When a high-ranking officer disappears without explanation from an RAAF Base, Phryne is called upon by an old flame to discreetly solve the mystery.
