really liked it

Another wonderful installment in the series. I don't know how Alan Bradley does it.

It's terrific to have Flavia back home doing what she does best: finding a corpse then sifting through gossip and fact to figure out whodunnit. She is a marvel.

My favourite paragraph was the opening of Chapter 5: it's vintage Flavia:

'Carla Sherringford-Cameron, her hands clasped together at her waist like lobster's claws, was singing "The Lass with the Delicate Air," and I found myself wishing I had thought to bring a firearm with me - although whether to put Carla out of her misery or to do away with myself, I had not quite yet decided.'

And fans of the overarching De Luce family saga will be stunned by the ending which delivers a true punch in the guts...

I now can't wait for the next book!
