One of my best discoveries as of late has been the Australian mystery TV show Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries. Set in the 1920s, Phryne Fisher is a detective who employs a variety of interesting characters to help her solve cases and keep up her flashy lifestyle.
Miss Fisher has had a really colourful life and also some loss, as we find out. Phryne not only solves cases for others, but also finds out clues about a mystery closer to home—about the disappearance of her younger sister Janie.
