A celebration of the divine Phryne Fisher, this special collectable treat for her fans is lavishly illustrated in full colour and includes all-new Phryne short stories, plus recipes and other miscellany.

The Honourable Phryne Fisher - she of the Lulu bob, green eyes, Cupid's Bow lips and diamante garters - is the 1920's most elegant and irrepressible sleuth.

Miss Phryne Fisher stars in every one of these surprising, compulsively readable and entertaining stories. With the ever-loyal Dot, the ingenious Mr Butler and all of Phryne's friends and household, the action is as fast as Phryne's wit and logic.

Also included in this delightful Treasury are privileged glimpses into Phryne's wardrobe essentials, including her favourite shoes and hats, her most decadent cocktail recipes and Phryne's best tips for discouraging unwanted admirers.

Lavishly illustrated with divine colour illustrations by Beth Norling, this collectable treat will bring joy to the hearts of Phryne Fisher fans everywhere.
