Speaking from Among the Bones

Book Series:


NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR &; NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERFrom 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.Acclaim for Speaking from Among the Bones   &;[Alan] Bradley scores another success. . . .

Bradley has created an utterly charming cast of characters . . . as quirky as any British mystery fan could hope for.&;&;Bookreporter   &;Delightful and entertaining.&;&;San Jose Mercury News
