Although it is autumn in the small English town of Bishop’s
Lacey, the chapel is decked with exotic flowers. Yes, Flavia
de Luce’s sister Ophelia is at last getting hitched, like a
mule to a wagon. “A church is a wonderful place for a
wedding,” muses Flavia, “surrounded as it is by the legions
of the dead, whose listening bones bear silent witness to
every promise made at the altar.”
Flavia is not your normal twelve-year-old girl. An expert in
the chemical nature of poisons, she has solved many
mysteries, sharpening her considerable detection skills to
the point where she had little choice but to turn
professional. So Flavia and dependable Dogger, estate
gardener and sounding board extraordinaire, set up shop at
the once-grand mansion of Buckshaw, eager to serve—not so
simple an endeavor with her odious little moon-faced cousin,
Undine, constantly underfoot. But Flavia and Dogger persevere.
Little does she know that their first case will be extremely
close to home, beginning with an unwelcome discovery in
Ophelia’s wedding cake: a human finger.
