Patron comment on

I am really enjoying this series by Alan Bradley. Great murder mysteries in that English village style but such a feisty protagonist he has crafted in the heroine Flavia du Luce. A young girl with a passion for chemistry and poisons who gets around the country side on an old bike called Gladys. family relationships are a key to the background plus her nosiness and attention to details and knowledge of her world. Flavia loves to be one step ahead of the local police which gets her into dark places at times. I look forward to new titles.
