    Flavia de Luce knows, rationally, that she's being sent away to her mother's old school, Miss Bodycote's Female Academy, in Canada. To a 12-year-old, leaving her beloved English home of Buckshaw feels like banishment. She's heartened when a corpse crashes down from the chimney in her room on her first night at Miss Bodycote's—Flavia has a remarkable affinity for the dead—and by private tutoring in "the gentle arts of mayhem" from headmistress Miss Fawlthorne and middle-of-the-night chemistry training from acquitted murderer Mrs. Bannerman. But as Flavia puzzles over the identity of the body, not to mention the fate of the three girls gone missing from the academy, she is warned repeatedly to trust no one, not knowing who belongs to the ultrasecret society that uses the code words "pheasant sandwiches." This seventh Flavia de Luce outing—of the 10 the author has promised—maintains the high standards Bradley set from the start, when he found himself "hijacked" by his precocious and fearless young protagonist with her limitless enthusiasm and staggering intellect. Another treat for readers of all ages. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
