This is Bradley's 5th book in the series and he has said he had 7 in mind when he started. He keeps making Flavia ever more captivating.
Bradley admits in the plot that Flavia's world sure has become a series of murder plots, but we don't mind...
Ms. Entwistle still sounds fresh, still has all the girlish inflections, and still makes us want more.
There is a lifelong memory at the end of the first half, where Flavia has a revealing conversation with her father.
Bradley seems to be moving toward an overarching plot for his last two books. May he be as successful in those as in the ones produced thus far.
