    (400)

    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!!"

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

    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.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Bradley admits in the plot that Flavia's world sure has become a series of murder plots, but we don't mind...


    Have you listened to any of Jayne Entwistle’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Ms. Entwistle still sounds fresh, still has all the girlish inflections, and still makes us want more.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There is a lifelong memory at the end of the first half, where Flavia has a revealing conversation with her father.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
