Thrice the Brinded Cat Hath Mew'd
Flavia de Luce Mystery Series, Book 8
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.

      Bradley / THRICED THE BRINDED CAT HATH MEW'D

      •One•

      The winter rain slashes at my face like icy razor blades, but I don't care. I dig my chin deep into the collar of my mackintosh, put my head down, and push on against the buffeting of the furious wind.

      I am cycling madly towards the village of Bishop's Lacey, fleeing hordes of Hell's hobgoblins.

      The past twenty-­four hours have been a nightmare. All I can think about is getting away from Buckshaw.

      Gladys's wheels groan horribly beneath us. The biting cold has penetrated her steel bones and seized the tendons of her brake cables. She judders wickedly on the slick tarmac, threatening to skid off the road entirely and pitch me into the icy ditch.

      I want to scream into the wind, but I don't. One of us, at least, must keep her wits about her.

      I try to put my thoughts in order.

      In spite of having been banished to Canada and then re-­banished back home from Miss Bodycote's Female Academy—­in what may or may not have been double disgrace—­I have to admit that I had been looking forward to being reunited with my family: Father; my two elder sisters, Feely and Daffy; our cook and housekeeper, Mrs. Mullet; and most of all, Dogger, Father's general factotum and all-­round right-­hand man.

      As every traveler does on an Atlantic crossing, I had daydreamed about my return to England. Father, Feely, and Daffy would be at the docks to greet me, of course, and perhaps even Aunt Felicity would put in an appearance. Welcome Home Flavia banners would be waved, a few discreet balloons, and all that sort of thing. Discreet of course, because, like myself, none of us de Luces wear our hearts on our sleeves.

      But when the ship berthed finally at Southampton, there had been only Dogger standing motionless in the rain beneath a dark umbrella.

      With the strangeness that comes of separation, I had offered him my hand, rather than giving him the crushing bear hug that was in my heart. I regretted this at once, but it was too late: The moment had passed and the opportunity was wasted.

      "I'm afraid I must be the bearer of rather bad news, Miss Flavia," Dogger had said. "Colonel de Luce has been taken ill. He is in hospital with pneumonia."

      "Father? In hospital? In Hinley?"

      "I'm afraid so."

      "We must go to him at once," I said. "What time will we be there?"

      We still had a long journey ahead of us, Dogger explained. The five-­twenty boat train from Southampton would take us up to London and to Waterloo Station, where, just after seven in the evening, we would have to change to a taxicab for a dash across the city to another train at another station.

      We would not reach Doddingsley until late in the evening, and would not arrive at Bishop's Lacey, Hinley, and the hospital until even later. By then, visiting hours would be long over.

      "Surely Dr. Darby—­" I said.

      But Dogger gave his head a sad shake, and it was not until that moment that I realized how grave Father's situation must be.

      Dogger was not the kind of person who would tell you that everything would be all right when he knew perfectly well that it would not. His silence said everything.

      Although there had been so much to say, we had ­spoken little in the train. Each of us had stared out blank-­faced through the rain-­streaked glass at a rushing land­scape that seemed in the gathering twilight to be the color of old bruises.

      From time to time I glanced at Dogger, but found that I could no longer decipher his face.

      Dogger had suffered horribly with...

      July 4, 2016
      Bestseller Bradley’s lively eighth Flavia de Luce novel (after 2015’s As Chimney Sweeps Come to Dust) finds the preadolescent chemist and detective back at Buckshaw, her crumbling family estate in England, after being dishonorably discharged from Miss Bodycote’s Female Academy in Canada. Her beloved father’s sickness taints homecoming, leaving moody Flavia to ward off a flock of pesky sisters. Welcome distraction comes when Flavia stumbles on the body of a local wood-carver strapped upside-down to a wooden contraption, flanked by a stack of children’s books by famed nonsense-versifier Oliver Inchbald. Flavia, who’s delighted to investigate under the eye of her old friend Inspector Hewitt, uncovers a backstory to the murder involving a man devoured by seagulls and a madcap Auntie Loo who dies scuba diving. Only the somewhat arbitrary final reveal disappoints. Child detectives can irritate, but Flavia’s a winner, a mix of sparky irreverence and wrathful propriety who evades the preciousness endemic to the species. Agent: Denise Bukowski, Bukowski Agency.

      Those who’ve delighted in the seven previous 1950s-era mysteries narrated by precocious British preteen Flavia de Luce are sure to enjoy her eloquent if sometimes snarky new account. Returning to her ramshackle family home in Bishop’s Lacey, England, at Christmastime, the budding chemist, poison expert, and self-styled sleuth is dismayed to find her father has been hospitalized with pneumonia, visitors not permitted. While attempting to lift her spirits and avoid her annoying sisters and cousin, she stumbles upon the corpse of the town’s woodcarver, crucified upside down. Suddenly feeling “gloriously alive,” she sets out, determined to bring the murderer to justice, armed with a logical mind and a major clue­—the first edition of a popular children’s book. Reader Entwistle has been the voice of Flavia and her family, friends, and enemies for all eight audios for one reason: she’s the perfect choice. Not just capable of credibly imitating the voice of youth, she’s able to mold it to fit the mercurial moods of Flavia, from, in this case, worrying about her father to experiencing elation when uncovering new details, some as bizarre as a report of a man gobbled up by seagulls. A Delacorte hardcover.

      Banished from Miss Bodycote's Female Academy in far-off Toronto (As Chimney Sweepers Come to Dust, 2015, etc.) and sent back home to England, Flavia de Luce wants nothing more than to hug her beloved father. Fate has other plans.No sooner has unapologetically precocious Flavia arrived back in Buckshaw, the home her late mother left her, than she's informed in hushed tones that the impecunious Col. Haviland de Luce is in hospital with pneumonia. Before she can tear herself away from Ophelia and Daphne, the hateful older sisters she's dubbed Feely and Daffy, and her recently discovered cousin Undine to go visit him and spread her distinctive brand of cyanide cheer, a routine errand she agrees to run for Cynthia Richardson, the vicar's wife, brings her face to knees with woodworker Roger Sambridge, who's been crucified upside down on the bedroom door of his cottage. Instead of screaming and fleeing like any other 12-year-old, Flavia naturally investigates. The most interesting discovery she makes is a set of Oliver Inchbold's children's books, which would seem far from the obvious reading material for an unmarried 70-year-old man. Her quest to ascertain what they were doing in Sambridge's library leads Flavia to a series of increasingly revealing conversations with Carla Sherrinford-Cameron, whose signature was in one of the books; to rumors that both Carla's late aunt, Louisa Congreve, and Sambridge neighbor Lillian Trench are witches; and to a past crime that's been cunningly concealed from Flavia's pal Inspector Hewitt--everywhere, in short, but to her father's bedside. Although she seems for quite a while to be relying on good contacts and good luck, Bradley's preteen heroine comes through in the end with a series of deductions so clever she wants to hug herself. So will you.

      Wickedly smart young Flavia de Luce launched her investigative career with "The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie", a multiaward winner, and her last two outings were both No. 1 LibraryReads picks. Here, she happily arrives home from banishment, uh, boarding school, in Canada only to learn that her father has been hospitalized. To escape a house full of unbearable relatives, she agrees to deliver a message sent by the vicar's wife to a gruff and isolated wood-carver, only to find him hanging upside down and his brindled cat looking singularly indifferent.
