I like reading books about war dogs, shipwrecks, and lady aviators.
This was my favorite Flavia book to date. Without losing any of the charm and imagination, this installment seriously leveled up the intrigue. Bradley's handling of Flavia's steady ascent into young adulthood is spot on. The interweaving mysteries and reveals in this story are compelling without becoming unbelievable.
Without giving anything away, I must say I was hoping for a different resolution to the end of the previous book's cliffhanger. But the way it actually played out was the way it needed to, and I'm glad it did.
