The Weed That Strings the Hangman's Bag (Flavia De Luce #2)

Author(s): Alan Bradley


 'I was lying dead in the churchyard...'


So says eleven-year-old Flavia de Luce - but soon a murder provides a gruesome distraction from her own death...


A travelling puppet show arrives in the sleepy English village of Bishop's Lacey, and everyone gathers to watch a performance of Jack and the Beanstalk in the village hall. But a shadow is cast over proceedings when a shocking murder takes place during the performance - a murder which strangely echoes a tragedy that occurred many years before. For Flavia, undoing the complex knot that ties these strands together will test her precocious powers of deduction to the limit - and throw a revealing light into some of the darker corners of the adult world...
