NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Flavia de Luce—“part Harriet the Spy, part Violet Baudelaire from Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events” (The New York Times Book Review)—takes her remarkable sleuthing prowess to the unexpectedly unsavory world of Canadian boarding schools in this captivating mystery. BONUS: This edition includes “The Curious Case of the Copper Corpse: A Flavia de Luce Story.” Banished! is how twelve-year-old Flavia de Luce laments her predicament, when her father and Aunt Felicity ship her off to Miss Bodycote’s Female Academy, the boarding school that her mother, Harriet, once attended across the sea in Canada. The sun has not yet risen on Flavia’s first day in captivity when a gift lands at her feet. Flavia being Flavia, a budding chemist and sleuth, that gift is a charred and mummified body, which tumbles out of a bedroom chimney. Now, while attending classes, making friends (and enemies), and assessing the school’s stern headmistress and faculty (one of whom is an acquitted murderess), Flavia is on the hunt for the victim’s identity and time of death, as well as suspects, motives, and means. Rumors swirl that Miss Bodycote’s is haunted, and that several girls have disappeared without a trace. When it comes to solving multiple mysteries, Flavia is up to the task—but her true destiny has yet to be revealed. Praise for As Chimney Sweepers Come to Dust “Flavia de Luce [is] perhaps contemporary crime fiction’s most original character—to say she is Pippi Longstocking with a Ph.D. in chemistry (speciality: poisons) barely begins to describe her.”—Maclean’s “Another treat for readers of all ages . . . [As Chimney Sweepers Come to Dust] maintains the high standards Bradley set from the start.”—Booklist “Exceptional . . . [The] intriguing setup only gets better, and Bradley makes Miss Bodycote’s a suitably Gothic setting for Flavia’s sleuthing. Through it all, her morbid narrative voice continues to charm.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review) “Even after all these years, Flavia de Luce is still the world’s greatest adolescent British chemist/busybody/sleuth.”—The Seattle Times “Plot twists come faster than Canadian snowfall. . . . Bradley’s sense of observation is as keen as gung-ho scientist Flavia’s. . . . The results so far are seven sparkling Flavia de Luce mysteries.”—Library Journal

Eine liebenswerte Giftmischerin Der Debütroman von Alan Bradley sorgte bereits vor Erscheinen für eine beispiellose Sensation: Er wurde mit dem renommiertesten Krimipreis der Welt ausgezeichnet, dem „Dagger Award“ – auf der Basis eines einzigen Kapitels! Die junge Flavia de Luce staunt nicht schlecht, als sie im ersten Morgenlicht eine Leiche im Garten entdeckt – ausgerechnet im Gurkenbeet! Jeder hält ihren Vater für den Mörder, denn Colonel de Luce hat sich noch tags zuvor mit dem Verblichenen gestritten. Nur ein einziger Mensch glaubt felsenfest an die Unschuld des Colonels – seine neunmalkluge Tochter Flavia. Schließlich ist der Ermordete vergiftet worden, und – ganz im Gegensatz zu Flavia, die eine begnadete Giftmischerin ist – ihr Vater hat nie Interesse an der Chemie des Todes gezeigt. Also fragt Flavia in vermeintlich kindlicher Unschuld sämtlichen Zeugen Löcher in den Bauch. Hartnäckig folgt sie jeder noch so abwegigen Spur – bis sie einsehen muss, dass ihr Vater tatsächlich ein dunkles Geheimnis hütet. Und so befürchtet Flavia, dass sie vielleicht eine zu gute Detektivin ist ... Gewitzt, ironisch und unwiderstehlich liebenswert – Flavia de Luce ist eine Ermittlerin, wie sie die Welt noch nicht gesehen hat!

Ach du heilige Pfeife – Flavia zieht alle Register! Sie steckt ihre Nase überall hinein und befördert jeden noch so tief vergrabenen Hinweis ans Licht – die elfjährige Flavia de Luce ist Hobbydetektivin aus Leidenschaft. Als sie ihre Nase zur Abwechslung in eine alte Kirchengruft steckt, rechnet sie allerdings nicht damit, eine verhältnismäßig frische Leiche ans Licht zu befördern. Aus dem Grab des Kirchenheiligen von Bishop's Lacey blickt ihr der ermordete Kirchenorganist hinter einer grotesken Gasmaske entgegen. Wer hatte einen Grund, Mr. Collicutt zu töten, und wieso hat er die Leiche hier, an diesem heiligen Ort, versteckt? Ein neuer Fall für die brillante Flavia!

»Die Flavia-de-Luce-Romane sind Kult.« Mail on Sunday Wie sieht für Sie der typische Ermittler aus? Männlich, mittelalt, ein bisschen brummig, mit einer aufgeweckten jungen Kollegin an seiner Seite? Denken Sie um! Denn kaum jemand hat eine so hohe Erfolgsquote, was die Lösung von Kriminalfällen betrifft, wie Flavia de Luce: zwölf Jahre alt, auf liebenswerte Weise ein bisschen naseweiß, begnadete Chemikerin, an ihrer Seite nur ihr treues Fahrrad Gladys. Auch in diesem ungewöhnlich heißen Sommer in England kreuzt während eines Bootsausflugs mit ihrer Familie eine Leiche Flavias Weg. Der tote Mann ist in blaue Seide gehüllt und trägt einen einzelnen roten Ballettschuh. Als auch noch drei Klatschtanten in der ortsansässigen Kirche dran glauben müssen, läuft Flavias zauberhafte Spürnase erneut zu Hochtouren auf.

Every Flavia de Luce novel is a reason to celebrate.”—USA Today “Part Harriet the Spy, part Violet Baudelaire from Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, Flavia is a pert and macabre pragmatist.”—The New York Times Book Review “Think preteen Nancy Drew, only savvier.”—Entertainment Weekly “This idiosyncratic young heroine continues to charm.”—The Wall Street Journal “Delightful . . . a combination of Eloise and Sherlock Holmes.”—The Boston Globe “The most intrepid and charming adolescent chemist/detective/busybody in all of rural, post–World War II England.”—The Seattle Times

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR • NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER From award-winning author Alan Bradley comes the next cozy British mystery starring intrepid young sleuth Flavia de Luce, hailed by USA Today as “one of the most remarkable creations in recent literature.” 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 five-hundredth 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. Who held a vendetta against Mr. Collicutt, and why would they hide him in such a sacred resting place? The irrepressible Flavia decides to find out. And what she unearths will prove there’s never such thing as an open-and-shut case. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Alan Bradley’s The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER On a spring morning in 1951, eleven-year-old chemist and aspiring detective Flavia de Luce gathers with her family at the railway station, awaiting the return of her long-lost mother, Harriet. Yet upon the train’s arrival in the English village of Bishop’s Lacey, Flavia is approached by a tall stranger who whispers a cryptic message into her ear. Moments later, he is dead, mysteriously pushed under the train by someone in the crowd. Who was this man, what did his words mean, and why were they intended for Flavia? Back home at Buckshaw, the de Luces’ crumbling estate, Flavia puts her sleuthing skills to the test. Following a trail of clues sparked by the discovery of a reel of film stashed away in the attic, she unravels the deepest secrets of the de Luce clan, involving none other than Winston Churchill himself. Surrounded by family, friends, and a famous pathologist from the Home Office—and making spectacular use of Harriet’s beloved Gipsy Moth plane, Blithe Spirit—Flavia will do anything, even take to the skies, to land a killer.
