Narrator Jayne Entwistle is rousing in this eighth Flavia de Luce novel. Twelve-year-old Flavia's sleuthing skills are required after she discovers Mr. Sambrich, a local wood-carver, has been murdered by being hung upside down. Entwistle's Flavia is unruffled, while her inner dialogue is fascinating as she searches for clues. In addition to elegant quotes from the Bible and Shakespeare (including this title), picturesque village descriptions, which Flavia gives when she and Gladys, her bicycle, cruise around, put listeners right in each locale. Entwistle artfully captures Dogger, Mr. de Luce's servant and Flavia's great friend, and Mrs. Bannerman, with her warm Canadian accent, as she helps Flavia research her theories. Audio is the perfect format. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2016]
