Introducing the precocious eleven-year-old sleuth Flavia de Luce...

This is the first book in a new series featuring eleven-year-old Flavia de Luce. A precocious child, enthralled by chemistry, she spends endless hours cooking up experiments—including many designed to torment her two older sisters. However, when her father is wrongfully accused of murdering the stranger found in their garden, Flavia abandons her chemistry lab and hops on her beloved bicycle, Gladys, in search of answers. Adult readers will quickly find themselves rooting for the feisty young sleuth in this delightful British cozy set in 1950.
