The presumed death of Harriet de Luce in a mysterious mountaineering accident in Tibet while Flavia was only a baby cast a sombre shadow over the family, leaving Colonel de Luce a broken man and Flavia herself with no memories of her mother.

But 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.

For Flavia, a gruesome new crime to solve is only one of the mysteries confronting her, as she begins to unravel the shocking revelations of Harriet's past and in doing so discovers an extraordinary tale of espionage and betrayal that also seems to be the key to her own destiny.

FLAVIA, THE PRE-TEEN QUEEN OF SLEUTHS Over the series Flavia has developed into a character of exceptional wit and charm. But she now seems certain to become a national treasure. Film director Sam Mendes' production company has optioned her stories for TV. She deserves it. She is as addictive as chocolate and as English as Vaughan William's s The Lark Ascending DAILY MAIL There are blackly comic episodes and moments of great poignancy, but it's Flavia's breezy style, encyclopedic knowledge, and touching independence of spirit which propel the books and make them such a tonic to read Cornflower Books Alan Bradley, who created 12 yer old detective Flavia de Luce, is about to become a national treasure. Bradley has managed to create one of the most beguiling detectives of recent years ... Film director Sam Mendes has optioned the rights ... Good old fashioned murder and armed robbery MAIL ON SUNDAY
