MISS FISHER'S MURDER MYSTERIES: Murder al a Mode - Phryne Fisher is a thoroughly modern woman operating in a mostly male world. The glamorous lady detective goes about her work with a pistol close at hand and, more often than not, a male admirer even closer.
Phryne and Dot are trying on clothes at the House of Fleuri when the body of Frances Wilde, the main investor in the business, is found on the premises shortly after her murder. The short list of suspects includes the victim's much younger husband, Madame Fleuri and her sister, the seamstress Violet, and Genevieve, the House model. The list of suspects is shortened even further when Violet is later found dead. Phryne solves the case, as usual, with time left over to walk the fashion runway.
