Speaking from Among the Bones

A Flavia de Luce Novel

(1)
NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR • INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER

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.

Who killed Mr Collicutt?

This time, the body of Mr Collicutt, the church organist, is found in the church, in the tomb of Saint Tancred. Who killed him and why was he hidden in the tomb? It takes all of Flavia’s efforts to solve this mystery. In the meantime, the situation of Buckshaw is getting more and more stressed: Flavia’s father has to make the decision to sell the estate. A “for sale” sign is put up at the gate, which makes them all very sad. But the announcement Flavia’s father makes after days of brooding is something none of them ever expected … What I love most about the Flavia novels is this typical English atmosphere. Situated in the early 1950s, Flavia lives in a world where not many people own a telephone or a motorcar yet. Life was different then. And Flavia is a wonderful heroine: curious, clever, and also charming (if she wants to …). As for the end: If there ever was a cliffhanger, this is it! Dear Mr Bradley, I find it really cruel, to leave your audience behind like this! Please, let us not wait too long for the next Flavia novel!
