“You frighten me,” the Gypsy said. “Never have I seen my crystal ball so filled with darkness.”
For Flavia de Luce, the old gypsy's words open up old wounds and new possibilities. Is she a faker, or is there some truth to her powers? And when the village is rocked by another ghastly murder, how will a growing fascination with gypsy lore help Flavia to solve it?

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.
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.
