Notes[edit | edit source]
The actual case Phryne accepted was to recover a stolen hat, but the recovery of the hat was never shown. She interviewed the thief who gave enough information that Phryne was able to deduce who currently possessed the stolen property, then the recovery itself was never shown. Phryne simply returned the hat to its owner.
