Summary
In 1929 Melbourne, Australia, three unmarried pregnant girls working at a convent laundry go missing weeks before they are due to give birth -- and then an ambitious reporter, Polly Kettle, who was investigating the girls' whereabouts, disappears, too. It's a good thing for them all that brave, intelligent Honourable Miss Phryne Fisher, who'd just met Polly, decides to sort it all out. Phryne, who's wealthy, glamorous, and a good shot, uses her skills and connections to solve a case that is dark at its core. Unnatural Habits is part of a fun, vibrant flapper-era series, which inspired the Australian TV program Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries. - Description by Dawn Towery
