The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches
The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches by Alan Bradley (1950s)
This is the 6th book in the Flavia de Luce series by Bradley and it is another great read. I love Flavia - an 11 year old who loves chemistry (especially poisons!) and has a knack for solving crimes. A unique mystery series. -- Added by LCE on 02/22/2014
