    Flavia de Luce is a dangerously brilliant 11-year-old with a passion for chemistry and a genius for solving murders. This time, Flavia finds herself untangling two deaths—separated by time but linked by the unlikeliest of threads.

    Story

    I thought this was just as enjoyable as the previous book. I probably would have given it a 4.5 if it had been possible for the same reason as I listed for "The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie". Mainly because the mystery does not have the tight reveal of some books, but is well done none the less, so I leaned to the 5.

    For those who are new to the series they are done very much in the vein of Sherlock Holmes where details are everything and the pieces slowly start to fall into place by the end of the story.

    It was well narrated. Many have complained about this, but I think each voice is perfectly done. The heroin is a 9 year old precocious aristocrat. It may be that those who found the voice annoying really would find the heroin annoying if they were to meet her in real life. If that is the case you probably shouldn't be listen to this series. On the contrary I found that they nature of the characters and their world was the most intriguing part of the story. Flavia behaves as a precocious 9 year old would. Her area of interest just happens to be chemistry. In the world of high mindedness and proper English living it would not be that unusual.


    Over all I would highly recommend the book for the character development, its fun flair, the narration, and the way the story transports you to the period in which it is written. If you have not read "Sweetness..." it is a must read.
