    It is June 1950 and a sleepy English village is about to be awakened by the discovery of a dead body in Colonel de Luce's cucumber patch. The police are baffled, and when a dead snipe is deposited on the Colonel's doorstep with a rare stamp impaled on its beak, they are baffled even more. Only the Colonel's daughter, the precocious Flavia -when she's not plotting elaborate revenges against her nasty older sisters in her basement chemical laboratory, that is - has the ingenuity to follow the clues that reveal the victim's ...

Great and Fun

by Karl K on May 15, 2014

This is the starting book in the series, and I generally like to read a series in order, but with these you can start with any one of them and enjoy them all!

Great Tween reading

by Irene K on Oct 18, 2012

Gift to granddaughter who loves this book and the rest of the triology.

50's Flashforward

by CARLA K on Mar 31, 2011

Loved this book! Nostalgia, and a mystery, all rolled into one, through the eyes of an 11 year old who could match wits with Holmes!

Refreshing

by SusieS on Aug 5, 2010

Refreshing describes the mystery solved by the 11-year-old sleuth with a passion for chemistry. Flavia's enthusiastic, youthful drive to explore clues delights the reader and propels the story forward. Since a friend had highly recommended that I read this book, I willingly purchased the sequel to share with her as a thank you for alerting me to this fresh suspense novel.
