Synopsis

Bishop's Lacey is never short of two things: mysteries to solve and pre-adolescent detectives to solve them. In this New York Times bestselling series of cozy mysteries, young chemist and aspiring detective Flavia de Luce once again brings her knowledge of poisons and her indefatigable spirit to solve the most dastardly crimes the English countryside has to offer, and in the process, she comes closer than ever to solving her life's greatest mystery--her mother's disappearance. . .

For fans of the series an exciting derivation from the established excellent path... Answering many unexpected questions... For those new to the series... Go back and read from the start... Every single book... You'll be very glad indeed... I await the next instalment with anticipation... And if there is no other... I'll try to take it stoically as any deluce...

I was so excited to read this book based on the cliff hanger of the previous one in this series. However, within the first few minutes of reading i was disappointed. Disappointed with how the cliff hanger was resolved. Because of the direction of the storyline involving Flavia and her mother, the book just sort of fell flat. The entire book was sombre, not the fun loving nature the rest of the books had. It was very sad to read the desperation that Flavia had with regard to Harriet. The book was also very predictable in its outcome. So while there were still shadows of the great characters Alan Bradley had created and developed over the series, as a whole it was a disappointment

This newest installation in the Flavia de Luce series leaves the audience longing for something. Unlike the previous tales, this one takes a much deeper look into the life of Harriet and less about the mystery itself--which I personally prefer. Overall, still a good read, but not the best in the series.
