    "Fantastic narration makes the story come alive"

    I've read the Flavia De Luce books, but the narration from Sophie Aldred makes this one come alive. Her voices for the characters are distinctive and you can almost see the people speaking as she reads the story. By far the best narrator I've heard on Audible.

    "Series improving"

    The series is bedding in nicely, though the ending here was so abrupt that I wondered whether there was a chapter of the text missing. Flavia de Luce is an intriguing narrator, if at times a little annoying, but certainly something different. Excellent narration.
