內容簡介


◎超齡偵探少女Flavia de Luce系列再度回歸
◎紐約時報暢銷榜暨得獎作家Alan Bradley又一懸疑力作
◎波士頓環球報盛讚,《療養怨》的驚悚駭人結合福爾摩斯的偵探懸疑

儘管從加拿大的鮑迪克女子學院被退學,十二歲的Flavia de Luce倒是很期待可以搭船回英國。雖然回家讓她很開心,但她在碼頭上得知了不幸的壞消息:她的父親病倒了,等待去醫院看病的期間,只能暫時先休養。

Flavia那些又吵又煩的姐姐們,與令人難以忍受的表親,讓老家Buckshaw現在似乎太空虛,但又不是真的那麼空;Flavia迫不及待地跳上她那值得信賴的腳踏車Gladys,出發去幫牧師的太太跑腿,送個訊息給一位深居簡出的木雕家。

Flavia抵達時發現前門半掩著,進門後卻被東西給絆倒─她踩到的竟是可憐的木雕家的遺體;他被頭上腳下地掛自己臥室門後。

這房子裡唯一的生物,是一隻對這令人不安的場景沒啥興趣的貓。好奇心可能不會殺死這隻貓,但Flavia對於可以展開一場新的調查,感到興致勃勃。
發現一具屍體能讓人精神為之一振,實在挺超乎尋常的;但,後頭等著Flavia的事,將會深深撼動她…

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Hailed as a combination of Eloise and Sherlock Holmes by The Boston Globe, Flavia de Luce returns in a much anticipated new Christmas mystery from award-winning and New York Times bestselling author Alan Bradley.

In spite of being ejected from Miss Bodycote s Female Academy in Canada, twelve-year-old Flavia de Luce is excited to be sailing home to England. But instead of a joyous homecoming, she is greeted on the docks with unfortunate news: Her father has fallen ill, and a hospital visit will have to wait while he rests. But with Flavia s blasted sisters and insufferable cousin underfoot, Buckshaw now seems both too empty and not empty enough. Only too eager to run an errand for the vicar s wife, Flavia hops on her trusty bicycle, Gladys, to deliver a message to a reclusive wood-carver. Finding the front door ajar, Flavia enters and stumbles upon the poor man s body hanging upside down on the back of his bedroom door. The only living creature in the house is a feline that shows little interest in the disturbing scene. Curiosity may not kill this cat, but Flavia is energized at the prospect of a new investigation. It s amazing what the discovery of a corpse can do for one s spirits. But what awaits Flavia will shake her to the very core.
