Every Flavia de Luce novel is a reason to celebrate.-USA Today

ALAN BRADLEY, AUTHOR OF THE MOST AWARD-WINNING SERIES DEBUT OF ANY YEAR, RETURNS WITH ANOTHER IRRESISTIBLE FLAVIA DE LUCE NOVEL.

[Alan] Bradley has created one of the most original, charming, devilishly creative and hilarious detectives of any age or any time.-Bookreporter

Its Christmastime, and Flavia de Luce-an eleven-year-old sleuth with a passion for chemistry-is tucked away in her laboratory, whipping up a concoction to ensnare Saint Nick. But she is soon distracted when a film crew arrives at Buckshaw, the de Luces decaying English estate, to shoot a movie starring the famed Phyllis Wyvern. Amid a raging blizzard, the entire village of Bishops Lacey gathers at Buckshaw to watch Wyvern perform, yet nobody is prepared for the evenings shocking conclusion: a body found strangled to death with a length of film. But who among the assembled guests would stage such a chilling scene? As the storm worsens and the list of suspects grows, Flavia must ferret out a killer hidden in plain sight.

BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Alan Bradleys Speaking from Among the Bones.

[Flavia is] the most intrepid and charming adolescent chemist/detective/busybody in all of rural, post-World War II England.-The Seattle Times

Quirky and delightful . . . Flavia is a classic literary character who manages to appeal to both young and old readers equally.-Wichita Falls Times Record News

Bradleys plot twists and turns delightfully.-Fort Worth Star-Telegram

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST MYSTERIES OF THE YEAR BY THE SEATTLE TIMES

01.11.2011 · Probability and reality are not reasons to read a Flavia de Luce book, and that is as true for I Am Half-Sick of Shadows as any of them. I am not looking for a well crafted mystery when I read these books, I am looking to romp around with the characters (especially Flavia) that populate the strange little world of Bishops Lacey.

‘Half Sick of Shadows’ by Richard Abbott is an adaptation of a ballad by Tennyson. A poem, that many of us have read, enjoyed and loved. It is a retelling of Alfred, Lord Tennyson’s ‘The Lady of Shallot’.
