Emily, Lady Hardcastle, is a widow with a mysterious and unconventional past. When she moves from London to rural Gloucestershire in 1908, she has her heart set on a quiet life in the country. But when she and her maid come upon a body in the woods, they become entangled in a murder mystery that sets them on an entertaining new path as amateur sleuths. In these, the first of Lady Hardcastle's adventures, she and Florence Armstrong, her faithful lady's maid, fumble their way through four mysteries. The Body in the Woods sets them on their new path when a supposed suicide turns out to be more than it appears. When The Circus Comes to Town, the amateur sleuths meet an old friend and must track down a multiple murderer who has turned the lives of the travelling entertainers upside down. The Case of the Missing Case sees a musician murdered at a country house party, but once again all is not as it seems and our heroines work with the Bristol police to solve the murder before the trail goes cold. In The Half Death of Gunther Ehrlichmann, Emily finally uncovers the truth of her husband's death and seals her own fate when an assassin tracks her down."

Spring, 1909, and Lady Hardcastle, amateur sleuth and all-round eccentric, is enjoying a well-deserved rest. But a week after a trip to the cattle market, Spencer Caradine, a local farmer, turns up dead in the pub, face-down in his beef and mushroom pie. Once again, it is up to Lady Hardcastle and her maid, Florence, to solve the case. Armed with wit and whimsy, not to mention Florence's mean right hook, the pair set out to discover what really happened and why. Was it poison or just ill luck? As they delve further into their investigation, they encounter a theft where nothing is stolen, a s�ance with a troubled ghost and an ever-increasing number of Spencer's family and friends who might just have motive for murder. One thing's for sure: Lady Hardcastle has a mystery on her hands.

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR • NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER From award-winning author Alan Bradley comes the next cozy British mystery starring intrepid young sleuth Flavia de Luce, hailed by USA Today as “one of the most remarkable creations in recent literature.” Eleven-year-old amateur detective and ardent chemist Flavia de Luce is used to digging up clues, whether they’re found among the potions in her laboratory or between the pages of her insufferable sisters’ diaries. What she is not accustomed to is digging up bodies. Upon the five-hundredth anniversary of St. Tancred’s death, the English hamlet of Bishop’s Lacey is busily preparing to open its patron saint’s tomb. Nobody is more excited to peek inside the crypt than Flavia, yet what she finds will halt the proceedings dead in their tracks: the body of Mr. Collicutt, the church organist, his face grotesquely and inexplicably masked. Who held a vendetta against Mr. Collicutt, and why would they hide him in such a sacred resting place? The irrepressible Flavia decides to find out. And what she unearths will prove there’s never such thing as an open-and-shut case. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Alan Bradley’s The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches.
