New York Times bestselling author Alan Bradley is a master of the British cozy mystery, and in Flavia de Luce, he has created a wickedly clever and intrepid young sleuth, hailed as "one of the most remarkable creations in recent literature" (USA Today). Now readers can follow the captivating Flavia as she stirs up trouble to solve the most confounding of crimes in this seven-volume eBook bundle:   THE SWEETNESS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PIE THE WEED THAT STRINGS THE HANGMAN'S BAG A RED HERRING WITHOUT MUSTARD I AM HALF-SICK OF SHADOWS SPEAKING FROM AMONG THE BONES THE DEAD IN THEIR VAULTED ARCHES AS CHIMNEY SWEEPERS COME TO DUST   It is the summer of 1950--and a series of inexplicable events has struck Buckshaw, the decaying English mansion that Flavia's family calls home. A dead bird is found on the doorstep, a postage stamp bizarrely pinned to its beak. Hours later, Flavia finds a man lying in the cucumber patch and watches as he takes his dying breath. For the appalled and delighted Flavia, an aspiring chemist with a passion for poison, life begins in earnest when murder comes to Buckshaw. Her investigation is the stuff of science: full of possibilities, contradictions, and connections. "I wish I could say I was afraid, but I wasn't. Quite the contrary. This was by far the most interesting thing that had ever happened to me in my entire life."   Praise for the Flavia de Luce series, winners of the Crime Writers' Association Debut Dagger Award, Barry Award, Agatha Award, Macavity Award, Dilys Winn Award, and Arthur Ellis Award   "Every Flavia de Luce novel is a reason to celebrate."--USA Today   "Part Harriet the Spy, part Violet Baudelaire from Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, Flavia is a pert and macabre pragmatist."--The New York Times Book Review   "Think preteen Nancy Drew, only savvier."--Entertainment Weekly   "This idiosyncratic young heroine continues to charm."--The Wall Street Journal   "Delightful . . . a combination of Eloise and Sherlock Holmes."--The Boston Globe   "Flavia de Luce is still the world's greatest adolescent British chemist/busybody/sleuth."--The Seattle Times… (more)
