Alan Bradley's Dagger Debut Award-winning murder mystery The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie introduces readers to precocious 11-year-old sleuth Flavia de Luce. Set in 1950 England, the book combines British wit, sibling rivalry, postage stamps and Flavia's passion for chemistry to set the stage for a rollicking whodunit.
“[A] sophisticated, series-launching crime novel … It's a rare pleasure to follow Flavia as she investigates her limited but boundless-feeling world.” –Entertainment Weekly
“Brilliant, irresistible and incorrigible, Flavia has a long future ahead of her. Bradley's mystery debut is a standout.” –Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
