    No one would ever have guessed that Paulina Paine was deaf, and that her ability to lip-read was astonishing. So the two men who met one day during the showing of a new art exhibition did not realise until too late that the middle-aged tweedy figure sitting out of earshot could understand every word they said. And it had been no ordinary conversation. In fact, Paulina was so shaken by its implications that she went to see Miss Silver straight away.

    Story

    This book is a good old fashioned mystery. Some might think it's simple (no CSI or forensics), but its a nice alternative when you don't want to think too hard about the "investigation". Just enjoy a house full of people who all want to kill the victim.

    It’s Christmastime, and the precocious Flavia de Luce—an eleven-year-old sleuth with a passion for chemistry and a penchant for crime-solving—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.

    Story

    I'm sure the books are fun to read, but what really makes it for me is Jayne Entwistle. No one else could "voice" Flavia so perfectly. Not inseparable from reality (I mean a child who is an expert in chemistry and poisons?), but who cares. The story goes on to make me feel like I'm running around solving mysteries with her and her rickety bike (I wonder if Gladys could carry us both?). Read the books, or better yet, listen to them.
