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.”

Please, please, Mr. Bradley, tell me we''ll be seeing Flavia again soon?"Laurie R. King, author of the Mary Russell series "Alan Bradley's marvelous book, The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie , is a fantastic read, a winner. Flavia walks right off the page and follows me through my day. I can hardly wait for the next book. Bravo!" Louise Penny, author of Still Life " The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie offers the reader the precious gift of a richly imagined and luscious new worldbut uniquely so, for this is the world of Flavia Sabina de Luce: an eleven-year-old, utterly winning, and altogether delightfully nasty piece of work. An outright pleasure from beginning to end."Gordon Dahlquist author of The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters "Alan Bradley brews a bubbly beaker of fun in his devilishly clever, wickedly amusing debut mystery, launching an eleven-year-old heroine with a passion for chemistryand revenge! What a delightful, original book!"Carolyn Hart, author of the Death on Demand series "Utterly charming! Eleven-year-old Flavia de Luce proves to be one of the most precocious, resourceful, and well, just plain dangerous, heroines around.

The kind of novel you can pass on to any reader knowing their pleasure it assured."Andrew Pyper, author of the The Killing Circle "Told through the observations of science-experimenting snoop of an 11-year-old girl, this jolly-good-fun murder mystery is as indulgent as a Bunty annual. Flavia de Luce, daughter to a philatelist colonel father and late mother, who dies when she was a baby, finds a body in the cucumber patch. In the twists and turns that ensue, centering around the nesting habits of the snipe and the last word of the dead man, she proves herself as indomitable a sleuth as you would expect a girl who says "Oh, piffle" to be. Good Housekeeping, UK "In June 1950's, very-nearly-eleven year old Flavia de Luce, rising above the torments of her two older sisters and plotting revenge in her Victorian chemistry lab, is intrigued by the mystery of snipe with a rare stamp in its beak, found on the doorstep of the crumbling de Luce country seat. And she is astonished by the effect the dead bird has on her stamp-obsessed father, the Colonel. When something much worse is found in the cucumber patch and family secrets begin to unravel, Flavia has to use all her deductive powers to solve a mystery and a crime. At once precocious and endearing, Flavia is a marvelous character. Quirkily appealing, this is definitely a crime novel with a difference." Choice Magazine , "Book of the Month." "Brilliant, irresistible and incorrigible, Flavia has a long future ahead of her.Bradley's mystery debut is a standout. " Kirkus Reviews , starred review "Fun for the reader. Fans of Louise Fitzhugh''s iconic Harriet the Spy will welcome 11-year-old sleuth Flavia de Luce, the heroine of . Bradley''s rollicking debut." Publishers Weekly "A delightful whodunit.hilarious, eccentric and mischievous." Tangled Web , UK "An absolute treat. It is original, clever, entertaining and funny.an extraordinary maze.
