    Story
    (440)

    Eleven-year-old amateur detective and ardent chemist Flavia de Luce is used to digging up clues, whether they’re found among the potions in her laboratory or between the pages of her insufferable sisters’ diaries. What she is not accustomed to is digging up bodies. Upon the 500th anniversary of St. Tancred’s death, the English hamlet of Bishop’s Lacey is busily preparing to open its patron saint’s tomb. Nobody is more excited to peek inside the crypt than Flavia, yet what she finds will halt the proceedings dead in their tracks: the body of Mr. Collicutt, the church organist, his face grotesquely and inexplicably masked.

    Donald says: "the best Flavia yet!!"

    Where does Speaking from Among the Bones rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This ranks among the best audio books. The reader captures the main character Flavia so well I cannot imagine Flavia with any other voice.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Flavia De Luce by far.


    What about Jayne Entwistle’s performance did you like?

    She captures the voice of an intelligent young girl with believability, respect, including the fun, the brillance, and the perspective of a child.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    No sin is safe from Flavia de Luce.

    Story
    (166)

    London, summer 1920. An unidentified body appears to have been run down by a motorcar and Ian Rutledge is leading the investigation to uncover what happened. While the signs point to murder, vital questions remain: Who is the victim? And where, exactly, was he killed? One small clue leads Rutledge to a firm built by two families, famous for producing and selling the world's best Madeira wine. Lewis French, the current head of the English enterprise, is missing. But is he the dead man? And does either his fiancée or his jilted former lover have anything to do with his disappearance - or possible death?

    Kathi says: "Predictably excellent addition to Rutledge series"
    "Superb story -- complex. very well read."

    What did you love best about Proof of Guilt?

    This is a complex story that goes deeper into aftereffects of World War I and a story that begins even before that. One of Todd's best. The reading is superb and made me feel I was there -- many dramatic scenes.


    What does Simon Prebble bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voice makes me feel I am there in the UK and feel Rutledge and Hamish with me.
