The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches is the 6th book in the Flavia de Luce series. Flavia is a lively and brilliant 11-year-old living with her father and sisters in a small village in England in the 1950s. In this book, Flavia is waiting at the train station when a stranger whispers something in her ear. Not long after, the stranger is pushed under the train and Flavia must figure out why he was murdered and what he has to do with the de Luce family.
Flavia is one of my favorite characters, and this series has quickly become one of my favorites, as well. I can identify with Flavia, who is something of a misfit and a loner, but in a rather heart-warming way. It is amazing that Alan Bradley can write about a young girl so wonderfully! The book is an easy and unfortunately quick read. (Why is it that the best books are read so quickly, while others just seem to drag along?) Bradley captures the quirkiness of the English town and this fallen-on-hard-times, upper-class family very well. I love visiting Bishop's Lacey and Buckshaw to find out what will happen next.
I highly recommend this book to any one who enjoys a funny and smart mystery with an absolutely enjoyable girl detective.
I received this book from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
