Mystery Woman Sleuth
It's the swinging '60s, and Peregrine Fisher is a bit adrift. She's just been fired from her most recent lousy job when she receives a mysterious letter on fine stationery from The Adventuresses' Club of the Antipodes, saying only: "Please attend urgent meeting regarding inheritance." Peregrine, it turns out, is private investigator Phryne Fisher's long-lost niece. Aunt Phryne, sadly, had gone missing in the deep jungles of Papa New Guinea six months prior, but her will clearly stipulated that Peregrine should inherit not just Phryne's fortunes, but also her seat in the Adventuresses' Club.
After making a less-than-stellar first impression in Melbourne, she is eager to prove herself worthy of a seat at the Adventuresses' table. When a fellow club member is accused of murder, Peregrine jumps at the chance to help on the case. Initially dismissed by the investigating detective and then obstructed by the chief inspector, it seems she's set herself an impossible task. But her aunt's true legacy is not the fancy home and car; Peregrine has also inherited Phryne's flair for sleuthing—and for putting herself in harm's way. When a second murder victim turns up, Peregrine knows it will take more than the Fisher name to keep her from becoming the third.
