The Weed That Strings the Hangman's Bag - Alan Bradley One of our favourite sleuths, 11 year-old Flavia de Luce, is at it again solving the murder at a show given by a famous puppeteer as well as solving the death a few years ago of a young boy. The plot is thin and highly implausible but somehow that doesn’t prevent us from enjoying this book and marvelling at how Flavia’s fertile brain works. Great fun.
