The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches – Alan Bradley (2014, Doubleday Canada)

I fear if I go into much detail about The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches, the sixth Flavia de Luce novel, I risk a spoiler, so I’ll tread carefully and just say that this is the darkest novel of the series to this point, with Flavia’s ordinary hijinks severely tempered by family matters. Of course, there IS a fresh murder – and a very high profile one at that – but strangely, it isn’t the focus of this mystery.  Bradley instead ties up a bunch of loose ends from the previous books, and takes Flavia into new, extremely interesting and dangerous territory, setting up for the upcoming stories about this irrepressible heroine.

    I read the first couple of these and then forgot about them; I’m now in the process of downloading a couple more, thanks to your review!

      I hope you enjoy them! I love Bradley’s writing style and Flavia is such an engaging character. There are two more books after the one I posted about today – I will review them in the next couple of weeks.

What do you think? It would be great to hear from you!
