Book Summary

Flavia de Luce — an 11-year-old with a love of chemistry and a talent for crime-solving — is interrupted when a film crew arrives at her family's English estate to shoot a movie with star Phyllis Wyvern. The night goes awry when the entire village gathers at the estate to watch Wyvern's performance and instead is confronted with a dead body — and a mystery for Flavia to solve.
