Fiction. Mystery. Historical Fiction. HTML:NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER ? ??The world??s greatest adolescent British chemist/busybody/sleuth? (The Seattle Times), Flavia de Luce, returns in a twisty mystery novel from award-winning author Alan Bradley.
In the wake of an unthinkable family tragedy, twelve-year-old Flavia de Luce is struggling to fill her empty days. For a needed escape, Dogger, the loyal family servant, suggests a boating trip for Flavia and her two older sisters. As their punt drifts past the church where a notorious vicar had recently dispatched three of his female parishioners by spiking their communion wine with cyanide, Flavia, an expert chemist with a passion for poisons, is ecstatic. Suddenly something grazes her fingers as she dangles them in the water. She clamps down on the object, imagining herself Ernest Hemingway battling a marlin, and pulls up what she expects will be a giant fish. But in Flavia??s grip is something far better: a human head, attached to a human body. If anything could take Flavia??s mind off sorrow, it is solving a murder??although one that may lead the young sleuth to an early grave.

Shucks! Finished already. Now I have to wait for the next one. ( )

I always enjoy the Flavia books. It's been interesting watching the author struggle with the success of the series. How on earth do I make it at all plausible that a pre-teen or teenage girl living in the countryside winds up solving all these crimes. I think he has hit on a solution now, will have to see how it plays out. The character of Hob is interesting, perhaps a freind or foe for future stories? ( )

In this ninth outing for Flavia, she and her sisters and Dogger, the family factotum, are on holiday to help the three sisters recover from the tragic occurrence at the end of the previous book, about six months previously. Being a Flavia story it isn't long before she turns up another dead body and then launches into her own investigation, this time ably assisted by the very talented Dogger. I especially liked the scene where they set up their own chemisty lab in Flavia's room at the pub where they end up staying.

However this book was a bit of a mixture for me because although I loved the interaction with Dogger, and the improvement in Flavia's relationship with her sisters, certainly Daffy (Daphne), I wasn't keen on the plot denoument and especially on the scene where Flavia somehow induces in herself a vision of the previous murder of three women at Holy Communion, so that she sees things she couldn't possibly know about. That was all a bit ridiculous. The explanation of who was responsible, and who killed the person Flavia found, is not very convincing. So that side of it was a bit of a letdown sadly and accounts for my awarding this 4 stars rather than 5.

audiobook mystery fiction (#9 in series, Jayne Entwistle as the voice of Flavia is always a delight, and the main reason I keep coming back to this series (though of course Bradley's writing is a main contributor to the liveliness of her character). I had to keep going back to listen to the parts my wandering brain missed the first (and second) time, and enjoyed the parts I remembered all over again -- I'm sure I could happily re-read the entire series.

On what was meant to be a cathartic river jaunt for Flavia and her family, Flavia is (surprise!) thrust once again into the midst of a murder mystery when she discovers a corpse in the water. This was a decent installment in the series, though these past few novels have not had the stellar quality of the earlier ones. There remains one more book for me to read in the series — possibly the last given the author's age. ( )
