The police are baffled, and when a dead snipe is deposited on the Colonel's doorstep with a rare stamp impaled on its beak, they are baffled even more.
Only the Colonel's daughter, the precocious Flavia - when she's not plotting elaborate revenges against her nasty older sisters in her basement chemical laboratory, that is - has the ingenuity to follow the clues that reveal the victim's identity, and a conspiracy that reached back into the de Luce family's murky past.Flavia and her family are brilliant creations, a darkly playful and wonderfully atmospheric flavour to a plot of delightful ingenuity.

A little predictable but
Worth a listen, and I'm going to give the next in the series a go too, but although the overall plot was ingenious, too much was telegraphed. As far as classic whodunnits are concerned, the absence of red herrinngs etc was disappointing. I can think of others who would have written things up better. I enjoyed the narration though.
