By Alan Bradley

Summer, 1950: at the once grand, but now rather shabby mansion of Buckshaw, eleven-year-old, Flavia de Luce, is an aspiring chemist with a passion for poison. It’s good she has a hobby: her father is distracted, her mother is dead, and her sisters ignore her at best, and antagonize her at worst – but she can give it as good as she gets it.

Flavia is both appalled and delighted when a murder comes to Buckshaw. Finally, she can apply her brilliant brain for more than schemes to torment her sisters.

Perfect for:

  • Readers who enjoy mysteries with young, intelligent, female detectives.
  • Lovers of stories set in post-war Britain.
  • Anyone intrigued by narratives of painfully dysfunctional families.
