Synopsis

The year is 1929, and the Honorable Phryne Fisher has been engaged to investigate the drowning death of a young Melbourne antique dealer. The police and coroner believe it was suicide, but the victim's grieving mother knows otherwise and trusts Phryne to see justice done. He certainly had some strange friends—a Balkan adventuress, a dilettante with a penchant for antiquities, a Classics professor, a medium… At the same time, Phryne is on the hunt for a long-lost illegitimate child, potentially heir to a handsome estate, much to the displeasure of the remaining relatives.
