New York Times bestselling author Alan Bradley is a master of the British cozy mystery, and in Flavia de Luce, he has created a wickedly clever and intrepid young sleuth, hailed as “one of the most remarkable creations in recent literature” (USA Today). Now readers can follow the captivating Flavia as she stirs up trouble to solve the most confounding of crimes in this five-volume eBook bundle:
 
THE SWEETNESS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PIE
THE WEED THAT STRINGS THE HANGMAN’S BAG
A RED HERRING WITHOUT MUSTARD
I AM HALF-SICK OF SHADOWS
SPEAKING FROM AMONG THE BONES
Also includes an excerpt from Alan Bradley’s sixth Flavia de Luce novel, The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches.
 
It is the summer of 1950—and a series of inexplicable events has struck Buckshaw, the decaying English mansion that Flavia’s family calls home. A dead bird is found on the doorstep, a postage stamp bizarrely pinned to its beak. Hours later, Flavia finds a man lying in the cucumber patch and watches as he takes his dying breath. For the appalled and delighted Flavia, an aspiring chemist with a passion for poison, life begins in earnest when murder comes to Buckshaw. Her investigation is the stuff of science: full of possibilities, contradictions, and connections. “I wish I could say I was afraid, but I wasn’t. Quite the contrary. This was by far the most interesting thing that had ever happened to me in my entire life.”
