About The Book
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
Flavia de Luce — “part Harriet the Spy, part Violet Baudelaire from Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events” (The New York Times Book Review) — takes her remarkable sleuthing prowess to the unexpectedly unsavory world of Canadian boarding schools in the captivating new mystery from New York Times bestselling author Alan Bradley.
Banished! is how twelve-year-old Flavia de Luce laments her predicament, when her father and Aunt Felicity ship her off to Miss Bodycote’s Female Academy, the boarding school that her mother, Harriet, once attended across the sea in Canada. The sun has not yet risen on Flavia’s first day in captivity when a gift lands at her feet. Flavia being Flavia, a budding chemist and sleuth, that gift is a charred and mummified body, which tumbles out of a bedroom chimney. Now, while attending classes, making friends (and enemies), and assessing the school’s stern headmistress and faculty (one of whom is an acquitted murderess), Flavia is on the hunt for the victim’s identity and time of death, as well as suspects, motives, and means. Rumors swirl that Miss Bodycote’s is haunted, and that several girls have disappeared without a trace. When it comes to solving multiple mysteries, Flavia is up to the task — but her true destiny has yet to be revealed.
Praise for As Chimney Sweepers Come to Dust
“Flavia de Luce [is] perhaps contemporary crime fiction’s most original character — to say she is Pippi Longstocking with a Ph.D. in chemistry (speciality: poisons) barely begins to describe her.” — Maclean’s
“Another treat for readers of all ages … [As Chimney Sweepers Come to Dust] maintains the high standards Bradley set from the start.” — Booklist
“Exceptional … [The] intriguing setup only gets better, and Bradley makes Miss Bodycote’s a suitably Gothic setting for Flavia’s sleuthing. Through it all, her morbid narrative voice continues to charm.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Even after all these years, Flavia de Luce is still the world’s greatest adolescent British chemist/busybody/sleuth.” — The Seattle Times
“Plot twists come faster than Canadian snowfall… Bradley’s sense of observation is as keen as gung-ho scientist Flavia’s… The results so far are seven sparkling Flavia de Luce mysteries.” — Library Journal
“A rattling good ‘girls’ own adventure’ yarn with an extensive cast of characters and suspects … When all is revealed, the links, misunderstandings and secrecy have a satisfying click.” — Winnipeg Free Press
“A delightful installment in the series!” — LibraryReads
Acclaim for Alan Bradley’s beloved Flavia de Luce novels, winners of the Crime Writers’ Association Debut Dagger Award, Barry Award, Agatha Award, Macavity Award, Dilys Winn Award, and Arthur Ellis Award
“If ever there were a sleuth who’s bold, brilliant, and, yes, adorable, it’s Flavia de Luce.” — USA Today
“This idiosyncratic young heroine continues to charm.” — The Wall Street Journal
“Delightful … a combination of Eloise and Sherlock Holmes.” — The Boston Globe
