I enjoyed the Miss Fisher series on PBS and now a DVD of Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears showed up at my local Public Library. Miss Fisher is a wealthy woman who loves to investigate crimes. She also packs a gun.
Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears feels more like an Indiana Jones movie as Miss Fisher (Essie Davis as Phryne Fisher) gets involved in an investigation into a village that was destroyed by a sandstorm. Miss Fisher helps to rescue a young Bedouin girl called Shirin from imprisonment in 1920s Jerusalem. Then, of course, a couple of murders occur and Miss Fisher finds herself embroiled in a complicated plot.
If you’re looking for some light entertainment, you’ll enjoy Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Fears and the Miss Fisher TV series. GRADE: B+
