Welcome to Bishop's Lacey. A murder every country mile For eleven-year-old Flavia de Luce, a visit to a Gypsy fortune-teller is just a bit of fun - until the old woman claims to see a vision of Flavia's mother, who died when Flavia was a baby.

»Die Flavia-de-Luce-Romane sind Kult.« Mail on Sunday Wie sieht für Sie der typische Ermittler aus? Männlich, mittelalt, ein bisschen brummig, mit einer aufgeweckten jungen Kollegin an seiner Seite? Denken Sie um! Denn kaum jemand hat eine so hohe Erfolgsquote, was die Lösung von Kriminalfällen betrifft, wie Flavia de Luce: zwölf Jahre alt, auf liebenswerte Weise ein bisschen naseweiß, begnadete Chemikerin, an ihrer Seite nur ihr treues Fahrrad Gladys. Auch in diesem ungewöhnlich heißen Sommer in England kreuzt während eines Bootsausflugs mit ihrer Familie eine Leiche Flavias Weg. Der tote Mann ist in blaue Seide gehüllt und trägt einen einzelnen roten Ballettschuh. Als auch noch drei Klatschtanten in der ortsansässigen Kirche dran glauben müssen, läuft Flavias zauberhafte Spürnase erneut zu Hochtouren auf.

Vorhang auf für Flavia und den Puppenmord In ihrem neuen spannenden Fall muss Flavia de Luce gleich zwei verzwickte Morde aufklären – die so unlösbar ineinander verworren zu sein scheinen wie die verwickelten Schnüre einer achtlos weggeworfenen Marionette ... Nie zuvor hat die junge Flavia de Luce einen so aufregenden Theaterabend erlebt: Der begnadete Puppenspieler Rupert Porson schlägt das Publikum in seinen Bann, und beim furiosen Finale gibt es neben Rauch und stiebenden Funken sogar eine echte Leiche! Die Polizei tappt zunächst im Dunkeln. Nur die brillante Hobbydetektivin Flavia bewahrt den Durchblick und findet heraus, dass jemand die elektrische Anlage der Bühne manipuliert hat. Und bald darauf erkennt sie, dass das ruchlose Verbrechen eng mit einem weiteren, seit mehreren Jahren ungeklärten Todesfall verwoben ist. Doch allmählich stellt sich die bange Frage, ob die neugierige Flavia ganz allein gegen den Strippenzieher in diesem mörderischen Marionettenspiel bestehen kann ...

Award-winning author Alan Bradley is a master of the British cozy mystery, and in Flavia de Luce, he has created a wickedly clever and intrepid young sleuth, hailed as “one of the most remarkable creations in recent literature” (USA Today). Now, in this captivating eBook bundle, readers can follow Flavia as she stirs up trouble to solve the most confounding of crimes. THE SWEETNESS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PIE “Delightful . . . [Flavia is] a combination of Eloise and Sherlock Holmes.”—The Boston Globe It is the summer of 1950—and at the once-grand mansion of Buckshaw, Flavia de Luce, an eleven-year-old aspiring chemist with a passion for poison, is intrigued by a series of inexplicable events: A dead bird is found on the doorstep, a postage stamp bizarrely pinned to its beak. Then, hours later, Flavia finds a man lying in the cucumber patch and watches him as he takes his dying breath. For Flavia, who is both appalled and delighted, life begins in earnest when murder comes to Buckshaw. THE WEED THAT STRINGS THE HANGMAN’S BAG “A smart, irreverent, unsappy mystery.”—Entertainment Weekly Flavia de Luce, a genius at investigating murders, thinks that her days of crime-solving in the bucolic English hamlet of Bishop’s Lacey are over—until puppeteer Rupert Porson has his own strings sizzled in an unfortunate rendezvous with electricity. But who’d do such a thing, and why? All clues point toward a suspicious death years earlier and a case the local constables can’t solve—without Flavia’s help. But in getting so close to who’s pulling the strings of this dance of death, has Flavia gotten in way over her head? A RED HERRING WITHOUT MUSTARD “Irresistibly appealing.”—The New York Times Book Review In the hamlet of Bishop’s Lacey, the unflappable Flavia de Luce had asked a Gypsy woman to tell her fortune—never expecting to later stumble across the poor soul, bludgeoned almost to death in her own caravan. Was this an act of retribution by those convinced that the soothsayer abducted a local child years ago? As the red herrings pile up, Flavia must sort through clues fishy and foul to untangle dark deeds and dangerous secrets. I AM HALF-SICK OF SHADOWS “One of the most original, charming, devilishly creative and hilarious detectives of any age or any time.”—Bookreporter It’s Christmastime when a film crew arrives at Buckshaw, Flavia de Luce’s beloved home, to shoot a movie starring the famed Phyllis Wyvern. Amid a raging blizzard, the entire village of Bishop’s Lacey gathers to watch Wyvern perform, yet nobody is prepared for the evening’s shocking conclusion: a body found strangled to death with a length of film. Who among the assembled guests would stage such a chilling scene? As the storm worsens, Flavia must ferret out a killer hidden in plain sight.
