'The Flavia de Luce novels are now a cult favourite.' Mail on Sunday

SUNNY SKIES, SLEEPY WATER ... AND A SINISTER CORPSE.

Twelve-year-old Flavia is enjoying the summer, spending her days punting along the river with friends. Languishing in boredom, she drags a slack hand in the water, and catches her fingers in the open mouth of a drowned corpse.

Brought to shore, the corpse is found to be dressed in blue silk with ribbons at the knee, and wearing a single red ballet slipper.

Flavia needs to put her super-sleuthing skills to the test to investigate the crime and keep her and her friends out of danger. But what could connect the village undertaker, his silent daughter, a canny police Constable and the publican's talented wife?

Genre: Historical Mystery
