From award-winning author Alan Bradley comes the next cozy British mystery starring intrepid young sleuth Flavia de Luce, hailed by USA Today as “one of the most remarkable creations in recent literature.”
Eleven-year-old amateur detective and ardent chemist Flavia de Luce is used to digging up clues, whether they’re found among the potions in her laboratory or between the pages of her insufferable sisters’ diaries. What she is not accustomed to is digging up bodies. Upon the five-hundredth anniversary of St. Tancred’s death, the English hamlet of Bishop’s Lacey is busily preparing to open its patron saint’s tomb. Nobody is more excited to peek inside the crypt than Flavia, yet what she finds will halt the proceedings dead in their tracks: the body of Mr. Collicutt, the church organist, his face grotesquely and inexplicably masked. Who held a vendetta against Mr. Collicutt, and why would they hide him in such a sacred resting place? The irrepressible Flavia decides to find out. And what she unearths will prove there’s never such thing as an open-and-shut case.

    I have become completely captivated by the antics of Flavia. Alan Bradley has managed to write about a child's life without making his story childish. Flavia is wild without being annoying; intelligent without being boring; and cleverly curious about anything and everything she is not supposed to get involved in. The supporting characters have depth and personality without overwhelming the story and pushing aside the heroine. The voice of the narrator is a bit squeaky at first but once I got used to her I can't imagine Flavia sounding any different. She seems to know exactly when to put a little bit of the devil into Flavia's voice. As with the Harry Potter series, the story is about a child but has so much depth that it is definitely an adult selection. More, please!
