As Chimney Sweepers Come to Dust - US coverHard on the heels of the return of her mother’s body from the frozen reaches of the Himalayas, Flavia, for her indiscretions, is banished from her home at Buckshaw and shipped across the ocean to Miss Bodycote’s Female Academy in Toronto, her mother’s alma mater, there to be inducted into a mysterious organization known as the Nide.

No sooner does she arrive, however, than a body comes crashing down out of the chimney and into her room, setting off a series of investigations into mysterious disappearances of girls from the school.

 

PRAISE FOR AS CHIMNEY SWEEPERS COME TO DUST

“Just when I think I’ve had enough of young Flavia de Luce and her quaint English gardens and her poisonous potions, Alan Bradley turns her around and makes her new again … This one is great fun.”— THE GLOBE AND MAIL

“A charming jumble of clues, false trails and surprises, all narrated in Flavia’s droll, amusing voice.”— CRITICSATLARGE.CA

“Eleven-year-old Flavia de Luce, perhaps contemporary crime fiction’s most original character – to say she is Pippi Longstocking with a Ph.D. in chemistry (speciality: poisons) barely begins to describe her – is finally coming home.”— MACLEAN'S

“Another treat for readers of all ages.”— BOOKLIST

“Bradley’s exceptional seventh series whodunit … Through it all, [Flavia’s] morbid narrative voice continues to charm.”— PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, starred review
