Another great adventure with Flavia the intrepid detective and brilliant chemist. In this episode, the relationship between Flavia and Dogger develops and I was glad that she has someone watching over her so diligently. Over the series I have enjoyed the love-hate relationships Flavia had with her sisters, but in this book Feely goes off on her honeymoon and Daffy is nearly invisible, so I missed those sibling interactions. Once again the ending is not really tied up in a neat bow and a few questions linger. It's part of the charm of this series and I hope there is more Flavia to read in the future.
