'The Flavia de Luce novels are now a cult favourite.' Mail on Sunday


Twelve-year-old Flavia is enjoying the summer, spending her days punting along the river with friends. Languishing in boredom, she drags a slack hand in the water, and catches her fingers in the open mouth of a drowned corpse.

Brought to shore, the corpse is found to be dressed in blue silk with ribbons at the knee, and wearing a single red ballet slipper.

Flavia needs to put her super-sleuthing skills to the test to investigate the crime and keep her and her friends out of danger. But what could connect the village undertaker, his silent daughter, a canny police Constable and the publican's talented wife?

Why I’m Waiting

I love the Flavia de Luce series and having been awaiting patiently since the close of Thrice the Brinded Cat Hath Mew’d. The author, Alan Bradley left us with an emotional cliff-hanger and I anticipate learning how Flavia deals with her father’s untimely death.
