It is June 1950 and a sleepy English village is about to be awakened by the discovery of a dead body in Colonel de Luce’s cucumber patch. 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.
Als vor Jahren die ersten Flavia de Luce Krimis von Alan Bradley herausgekommen sind, haben viele Buchhandlungen sie ins Kinderbuchregal geschoben, weil die Heldin ein kleines Mädchen ist. Aber nein, das sind ausgewachsene, hintergründige und sehr ungewöhnliche Krimis! Persönlicher Tipp von mir. “I’m a little surprised that a man, Bradley, can capture so well how a girl thinks – and still make the story so readable for a grow up. Flavia is clever, she is brave, she is confused, she is mean, she is kind, she is sooooo funny, smart (maybe she’s unrealistically smart), she yearns for a hug and warmth from her family. I love imagining her flying over the countryside on her bicycle, Gladys.” (Leserin) (1.055 Rezensionen / 4,3 Sterne), 306 Seiten noch günstig?
