"Our favorite 11-year-old smarty pants sleuth is back in the second installment of the Flavia de Luce mysteries, set in charming 1950s England at the home of an eccentric old family. When a famous television puppeteer takes his show on the road, the last place Flavia expects his van to break down is her tiny hometown of Bishop’s Lacey. Forced to put on an act in town to get his show back on the road, the puppeteer does two brilliant performances before being electrocuted in front of a live audience. Straightaway, Flavia is on the case, putting her stellar skills and sometimes questionable tactics to use." -- Michelle Z. from In the Stacks.tv
