Kort biografi
Bradley was born in 1938 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. He was brought up with two older sisters roughly 100 kilometers east of Toronto in the small town of Cobourg, Ontario. His mother raised the children alone after Bradley's father left the family when he was a toddler.[1] Bradley learned to read at an early age, partly because he was a sickly child who spent a lot of time in bed.[2] However, Bradley confesses to having been a "very bad student",[1] particularly in high school,[2] spending his free time reading in the local cemetery because he felt he didn't fit in.

After completing his education, Bradley worked in Cobourg as a radio and television engineer, designing and building electronic systems. He then worked briefly for Ryerson Polytechnical Institute in Toronto (now Ryerson University), before moving to Saskatoon to take a job at the University of Saskatchewan in 1969. There he helped develop a broadcasting studio, where he worked as Director of Television Engineering for 25 years. He took an early retirement from the university in 1994 in order to become a full-time writer.[1]Since selling their home in Kelowna, British Columbia in 2009, Bradley and his wife Shirley have been traveling, hoping to spend time living in various places and visiting every country that is publishing his books.

Favorite line: “Was sorrow, in the end, a private thing? A closed container? Something that, like a bucket of water, could be borne only on a single pair of shoulders?”

The language is beautiful, the mystery engaging and the characters absorbing. Wish I had the next book on hand as this one ends with a start!

This was an entertaining murder mystery where the sleuth is unlike any I have read about before. Flavia de Luce is a precocious 11-year-old whose passion is chemistry, specifically poisons. One day, she discovers a dying man in a cucumber patch at their home property. What ensues is her investigation, as she thinks through the possible suspects and circumstances that may have led to this stranger's death. The writing is often funny, definitely quirky. I enjoyed this and will definitely read the following installments in this series.… (mer)
