The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches

Ear Moments later he is dead mysteriously pushed under the train by someone in the crowd Who was this man what did his words mean and why were they intended for Flavia Back home at Buckshaw the de Luces’ crumbling estate Flavia puts her sleuthing skills to the test Following a trail of clues sparked by the discovery of a reel of film stash. Flavia de Luce is a brilliant young girl whose knowledge of chemistry is on par with many PhDs Flavia uses her abilities to investigate murders and delights in solving crimes ahead of the police In this sixth book in the series Flavia once again uses her skills to track down a killerThe book could be read as a standalone but it s much better to start with book one and go on from thereTwelve year old Flavia de Luce and her family are at the train station awaiting the return of a relative when a mysterious man gives Flavia a cryptic message for her father Before long the man is dead his mutilated body lying under the train Thus begins a Flavia de Luce novel that is of an espionage story than a murder mystery Nevertheless Flavia is up to her usual tricks in this book cooking up exotic chemical experiments to reanimate the dead and to decipher hidden messages As always Flavia is also plotting to best the local police with her superior detective skills The book is filled with interesting characters including Mr de Luce s faithful manservant and jack of all trades Dogger eccentric relatives uirky acuaintances and Flavia s sisters I was a little annoyed by Flavia s continuing arrogance and often expressed high opinion of herself and I found the convoluted espionage tale slightly confusing Nevertheless it was an okay light readYou can follow my reviews at

Ed away in the attic she unravels the deepest secrets of the de Luce clan involving none other than Winston Churchill himself Surrounded by family friends and a famous pathologist from the Home Office and making spectacular use of Harriet’s beloved Gipsy Moth plane Blithe Spirit Flavia will do anything even take to the skies to land a kill. Life has suddenly become serious for 11 year old Flavia de Luce Her beloved mother Harriet s body has been found in a glacier in the Alps where she disappeared ten years ago and has been returned in state to her family waiting at Buckshaw station There will be no tinkering in her Uncle Tar s chemistry lab or freewheeling around the village on her trusty bicycle for Flavia for a while Her Aunts Felicity and Lena arrive for the funeral as well as several old family friends As the family are leaving the station to follow Harriet s coffin a stranger whispers an enigmatic messsage for Flavia to give her father and shortly after falls to his death on to the train tracks just as the train is leaving I think this is the best book in the series to date This is no murder mystery for Flavia to solve with her investigative skills and knowledge of chemistry but a sombre tome where Flavia learns about her mother s disappearance and is entrusted with family secrets Nevertheless there are some lighter moments as Flavia manages some tinkering gets to meet the Gypsy Moth that Harriet loved to fly and solves some puzzles regarding both the death of the stranger and her mother Flavia also comes to realise that there are big changes ahead for her and she will need to start growing up to meet the challenges We can only hope that her spirit remains unchanged and she still manages to get into the scrapes and adventures that make this series so much fun

characters The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches

On a spring morning in 1951 eleven year old chemist and aspiring detective Flavia de Luce gathers with her family at the railway station awaiting the return of her long lost mother Harriet Yet upon the train’s arrival in the English village of Bishop’s Lacey Flavia is approached by a tall stranger who whispers a cryptic message into her. I spend a year waiting for it and a day reading it From the first Flavia mystery five years ago I have been hooked The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches did not disappoint There is so much I wish I could say about it but won t for fear I will give something away I will say this after reading the first lines I said to myself I knew it But I didn t know it I didn t know the half of itJust as Bradley has done in each of the Flavia books as they progress he brings us deeper into the lives and nature of the characters centered at Buckshaw and Bishops Lacey but in this latest installment he reveals them to us so that we finally understand what it is that has made them who they are There is a tenderness in Flavia that has been hinted at before and spills out in this book Colonel de Luce is less of a character and of a grieving husband and father holding himself together because he has to We get a pick inside Daffy that is very honest and telling while Feely remains a bit well Feely like She s just so unlikeable Once again it s Dogger that I love With each book he turns out to be even than what we imagined Even Aunt Felicity is much interesting than we imaginedI can safely say that the action stays closer to home at Buckshaw and that we come to some real resolution The tone of the book is serious than a Flavia fan is accustomed to but there is still humor to be found All the things about Flavia that makes her such an endearing character are still there but she is forced to know and deal with things that are beyond what she wants to and still what she wants most is a happy family and a home that s full of life Oh just read it for yourself uicklyThe one thing I can t determine is if there will be Flavia books please yes please yes The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches could reasonably end the series gasp or it could mark the beginning of a great deal to come in the life of Flavia de Luce I really hope it s the latter
