Speaking From the Bones by Alan Bradley is another Flavia De Luce tale. She's eleven years old, but a genius kid who truly knows her chemistry and poisons. The English hamlet of Bishop's Lacey is about to open the patron saint's tomb, but alas we find the last organist's body in the area. Who killed him? Why and how? Flavia knows how to do detective work and she's small enough to sneak into tiny spaces.
Meanwhile, her father is failing, the house is falling apart, her sisters are conspiring against her, and some strangers in town may have answers? Or they deserve further questioning. Bradley serves up a delicious read full of twists and turns. His heroine is young but worthy of her brain power. Don't count her out on this one. The pages turn and answers come in this delightful read.
