Reviews

"A winning tenth mystery."--People

"Flavia's over-the-top use of alliteration . . . and proudly precocious, sesquipedalian vocabulary . . . along with the thoroughly endearing cast of characters, make this series' tenth installment a laugh-out-loud winner."--Booklist (starred review)

"Flavia de Luce hasn't lost a sister, she's gained a case--and what a case. . . . Perhaps the most consistently hilarious adventure of the alarmingly precocious heroine."--Kirkus Reviews
