Summary, etc.: On a spring morning in 1951, eleven-year-old chemist and aspiring detective Flavia de Luce gathers with her family at the railway station, awaiting the return of her long-lost mother. Flavia is approached by a tall stranger who whispers a cryptic message into her ear. Moments later he is pushed under the train by someone in the crowd. Following a trail of clues, she unravels the deepest secrets of the de Luce clan, involving none other than Winston Churchill himself.

    Flavia de Luce is almost 12 in her latest outing, and she's as precocious as ever. Her mother, Harriet, long missing in the Himalayas, has been found and returned in her casket to Buckshaw. As Flavia waits for her mother's body at the railway station, she's approached by two men. One is Winston Churchill; the other is an unknown man in an oversize overcoat. Both leave her cryptic messages. After Churchill leaves, the second man is inexplicably killed by the arriving train. Narrator Entwistle once again captures both the impetuousness and poignancy of young Flavia's character. Entwistle's sharp, clipped British accent sounds a bit frantic as she jumps between observations and conclusions, but it reflects Flavia's quick mind perfectly. Despite her impressive intelligence, Flavia is still a child, and Entwistle is also able to voice her hurt feelings and longings. Especially fun is a new character, Undine, the daughter of a long-lost cousin, who is whinier than Flavia but equally bright. The older de Luce girls are still snippy, Dogger is still steady, and Father is still weary, remaining true to Entwistle's earlier characterizations. Although it's not as suspenseful as others in the series, longtime fans will enjoy learning Harriet's backstory as well as watching Flavia in action. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
