The Grave's a Fine and Private Place by Alan Bradley (audiobook)

genre: historical mystery

Flavia has gone on holiday with Dogger and her sisters and whilst punting on the river, she happens upon, you guessed it, a dead body.  This one, a man dressed to the nines whose disappearance may well be connected somehow to the murder of three church women a few years previously.  Women who were POISONED no less, Flavia's favorite.  What better way to spend your holiday than investigating a murder??

I will listen to every Flavia ever written.  This episode is just a pleasant and delightful as all the others.  She gets into scrapes, lies her head off, makes amazing deductions, does a fine bit of chemistry and generally  solves all the things.  I love it.  I love her relationship with Dogger and the more we learn about him, the more I just like him as a character as well.  Alan Bradley hasn't disappointed me yet.
