Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
It is the summer of 1950–and at the once-grand mansion of Buckshaw, young Flavia de Luce, an aspiring chemist with a passion for poison, is intrigued by a series of inexplicable events: A dead bird is found on the doorstep, a postage stamp bizarrely pinned to its beak. Then, hours later, Flavia finds a man lying in the cucumber patch and watches him as he takes his dying breath.

For Flavia, who is both appalled and delighted, life begins in earnest when murder comes to Buckshaw. “I wish I could say I was afraid, but I wasn’t. Quite the contrary. This was by far the most interesting thing that had ever happened to me in my entire life.”

Review:
'Set in 1950 this has the lightest of touches and a joyful intent to entertain. There's more than sufficient plot to keep you listening as Emilia Fox brings Flavia to delightful life.' (Friday 21 May) (Kati Nicholl DAILY EXPRESS)

Review

Review:
Take one precocious eleven-year-old girl called Flavia. Add an ancient country house somewhere in England in 1950. Then sprinkle with murder, mystery and dark family secrets... Abridged edition.
