Only eleven years old and yet so smart, fearless and self-reliant, Flavia de Luce seems to attract adventure. This is the fifth book in the series and the third I have read, and I have enjoyed every one. The over-the-top English eccentricity, the freedom allowed Flavia by her vacant father, the crumbling pile that is the de Luce ancient family home all make for a wonderful background for Flavia to do her detecting work. The village is populated with some of the most unusual people, and Flavia has them all under observation. She is a detective par excellence, and true to form, figures out the whole murder plot ahead of the investigating officers. The cliff-hanger revealed at the end is the ultimate hook to make you salivate for the next installment.

Flavia: "Why do people always quote Hamlet when they want to sound clever?
Altogether too much Shakespeare, methinks!"

I enjoy these Flavia de Luce mysteries, set in England in the 50s, with a cheerful adolescent girl as protagonist.

My favourite so far-love Flavia going around on her trusty bike Gladys solving crimes. Thanks "modestgoddess" for the warning about "gloryb". Hope many read this delightful novel and don't have the fun spoiled by those who just have to give away the ending.

This novel is similar to the first one in the series, but with less antagonism among the sisters. Plot is good with the murder of the church organist this time. Eerie sections describe tunneling to the church basement by way of graves. There seems to be a solution to the de Luce's indebtedness as their estate goes up for sale and Harriet seems to have been found. All to be unravelled in the next novel, of course.
I can almost see Bradley plotting out the action for this series before his writing started and then limiting himself to revealing only so much in each novel. I wonder how much beyond the next 1-2 novels he'll take the series.

I absolutely love this series and I think this is the best book yet! It was a little far-fetched at times, but still very interesting. I just didn't want it to end. And... It appears there may be another in the works.
