Mr. Bradley has added a whole new cast of characters for this episode wherein Flavia finds herself feeling banished to Canada. One murder leads to another and she works to solve these mysteries against all advice. As always, Jayne Entwistle’s narration imbues the series' newcomers with great texture and dimension. ( )

I did not like this Flavian as well as the others. The mysteries are often just window dressing, the fun part being spending time with Flavia, particularly in the lab. I felt the lack of buckthorn & it's inhabitants ( )

Another charming addition to the series. ( )

I've really, really liked all of the books up until this one. This one is just completely different in a lot of ways, and none of them were to my liking. It was confusing - she's sent to a school in Toronto, but she doesn't seem to actually ... learn anything? The new characters don't have a lot of depth, and all of characters we know from the other books are missing. It was just disappointing. ( )

This seventh volume in the Flavia de Luce series started off promisingly with her exile to a girl's school in Canada where she was to learn some of the skills she would need to take on her role in the government secret service organisation to which her deceased mother belonged, as we learned in volume 6. Things get moving pretty quickly with the discovery of a dead body up a chimney. Even the identity of said body is in doubt, as three girls have apparently disappeared from the school a few years before.

Flavia is cut off from her normal milieu and one of my favourite fictional characters, Dogger, her father's valet and Flavia's mentor. The dynamic is very different: she is not whizzing around on her bicycle Gladys and querying adults - there are other girls to deal with, some of whom also seem to be in training for the same security service. However, none of them become soul mates to Flavia's and our disappointment and the uncertainty about the victim and murderer persists until late on in the story when it is rather abruptly resolved involving a character who was so throw away earlier on, I couldn't even recall their appearance. I also couldn't fathom why she and possibly others had changed their identities so that part of it remains a muddle. So although I enjoyed most of the story, as with volume 6 I found the ending rather anti-climactic. Hence only a 4-star rating. ( )
