The absence of Flavia DeLuce’s mother, Harriet, has always cast a shadow, since her presumed death in a mountaineering accident in Tibet. Now, astonishingly, a specially commissioned train is bringing Harriet back to Buckshaw. But rather than putting the past finally to rest, Harriet's return is set to trigger a further series of bizarre and deadly events, as a most curious group of individuals converge on Buckshaw to pay their respects…

Wonderful idiosyncratic, funny,unique heroine
I love these books. Flavia is a unique amateur detective. She is frighteningly intelligent, unstoppable, funny and yet vulnerable. Why can't I find all the books in the series on audible? Even some I have don't seem available now. There is a new one due out in September 2016. Why can't I find it to pre order on audible? Is it because there is a film coming out?
The main character , the setting, the humour and unusual plot. Enjoyed all the books in the series so far.
She captured the character beautifully.
More Flavia de Luce please! Bravo Alan Bradley. These books are both funny and dark with a wonderful heroine. I love Flavia.
