Description
On a spring morning in 1951, 11-year-old chemist and sleuth Flavia de Luce is at the railway station, awaiting the return of her long-lost mother. Yet upon the train's arrival, Flavia is approached by a stranger who whispers a cryptic message into her ear; moments later, he is dead, mysteriously pushed under the train by someone in the crowd. In this sixth book in the bestselling, "irresistibly appealing" (NYTBR) series, Flavia's quest for a killer leads her to a reel of film in her family's attic, a clue with a mysterious connection to Winston Churchill. Since her first outing in The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie—which won the Agatha, Barry, Ellis, Macavity, and CWA Dagger Awards for Best First Novel—the feisty amateur sleuth has put her passion for chemistry and her genius for solving murders to the test. This installment of Alan Bradley's hugely popular British cozy series is full of characteristically quirky characters and snappy dialogue.

"It's hard to resist either the genre's pre-eminent preteen sleuth or the hushed revelations about her family."—Kirkus Reviews

"[Alan Bradley's] award-winning Flavia de Luce series ... has enchanted readers with the outrageous sleuthing career of its precocious leading lady.... This latest adventure contains all the winning elements of the previous books."—Library Journal (starred review)
