**Fans of Flavia de Luce rejoice—here’s a special eBook original short story, in which the eleven-year-old connoisseur of chemistry is immersed in her element: solving a mystery! **
*Murder! *the letter says, *Come at once. Anson House, Greyminster, Staircase No. 3. *How can Flavia de Luce resist such an urgent plea? After all, examining a dead body sounds like a perfectly splendid way to spend a Sunday. So Flavia hops upon her trusted bicycle, Gladys, whose rubber tires hiss happily along the rainy road, and arrives at her father’s mist-shrouded old school. There, a terrified boy leads her to the loo where, sitting in a bathtub, is what appears to be a statue. But, no: To Flavia’s surprise, the thing is in fact a naked dead man. Save his face, he seems to have been carved out of copper. Never one to shy away from the macabre, Flavia gets to work—only to find that when an investigation begins with a metallic cadaver, ever more curious twists are to be expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great short A neat and tidy story. Very Flavia. Would have liked it to be a bit longer for the price of $2, still recommended though.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not up to the same level as the novels I'll read any Flavia story Mr. Bradley cares to write. But she's not her best in the short story form.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No enough to make it great I get it. It's a short story, but Flavia needs more to really shine in her murder mysteries. It simply went too fast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bradley has created an irresistible character I'm just hooked on his Flavia de Luce character. I hopes he continues to provide many more Flavia de Luce novels
