Murder and charm

by Tarissa on Oct 5, 2014

A great sequel to "The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie". 11-year-old Flavia de Luce returns in this series for adults, as a unique child with a bit of a mad scientist streak. Death strikes again in Bishop's Lacy, England, and Flavia is on the case. Rupert Porson, a traveling puppeteer, dies on stage in front of the whole town. Flavia is shocked, saddened and fascinated with the whole scene as it unfolded onstage. Off to the laboratory for a chemical examination! Note: The storyline hints that Rupert was not always the charming entertainer that he seemed to be in public, but that was rather involved with women. Although the book is captivating, it's also not very moral. Even Flavia's cunning deeds show that she has rather evil intentions sometimes --- although still quite laughable.

Great series

Alan Bradley develops a unique character in interesting settings with believable experiences. His books are hard to put down. I'm working my way through from the beginning.
