Period detail really stands out in this one
27 June 2017 | by bensonmum2See all my reviews

Phryne hosts a women's tennis exhibition. When one of the participants is found dead, Phryne does what Phryne usually does - she investigates. Before she can find the killer, however, she has to determine whether or not the victim was the intended target. She must also weave her way through a labyrinth of backstory to arrive at the answer to the mystery.

Season 3 is turning out to be exceptionally strong. Game, Set, and Murder is another in a long line of outstanding episodes. I've commented numerous times on the period detail in these episodes and that holds especially true here with the period rackets, tennis outfits, and shoes. However, I was most impressed with the actual tennis court. The fact that a championship level tennis match could take place on Phyrne's lawn is something you wouldn't see today.

Another big plus for this episode is all the plot twists and turns. It's always fun to watch when Phryne is presented with a bunch of clues to work through. Here, there are plenty of red herrings and false leads that have to be resolved. Game, Set, and Murder also features several interesting characters for Phryne to play with. From the over-sexed American tennis player to the ever-present photographer with pornography in his closet to the jilted ex-lover - there's no shortage of suspects. Fun stuff.

The final solution does seem a bit out of left field, but with Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, I really never care. The fun in this series comes from watching Phryne and Co go about their work - not necessarily in the mystery's solution.
