The Weed That Strings the Hangman's Bag
Flavia's inquisitiveness leads her to a travelling puppet show, but when the puppeteer meets a grim end, she can't resist getting involved. Her razor-sharp intellect shines as she pieces together the puzzle.

A Red Herring Without Mustard
Flavia stumbles upon a disfigured Gypsy fortune teller in the woods, setting off a chain of events that will challenge her skills and bravery as she delves into the heart of a sinister conspiracy.

I Am Half-Sick of Shadows
Christmas at Buckshaw promises to be anything but ordinary when a film crew arrives. Flavia takes on the role of amateur sleuth once more, attempting to unmask a killer lurking in the shadows.

Speaking from Among the Bones 
Bishop's Lacey is abuzz with excitement as the tomb of St. Tancred is to be opened, but when Flavia discovers a body in the crypt, she must race against time to solve a centuries-old mystery.
