Miss Phryne Fisher by Kerry Greenwood
Miss Phryne Fisher (pronounced “fry-nee”) is the main character in a series of historical mystery novels by Australian novelist Kerry Greenwood.

The series is currently ongoing, and Greenwood has said that she will continue writing Phryne Fisher mysteries as long as people want to read them.
