A Book We Love: The Weed that Strings the Hangman’s Bag

The Weed that Strings the Hangman’s Bag: a Flavia de Luce Mystery by Alan Bradley

The Weed that Strings the Hangman’s Bag is the second in Bradley’s enchanting Flavia de Luce mysteries. Eleven-year-old British girl Flavia de Luce loves chemistry and puts her knowledge to good use in helping the police solve crimes in her small English village immediately following World War II. The secondary characters are also quite eccentric. Flavia is a precocious, bored young lady who takes charge of the situation when a traveling puppeteer is murdered in the local church. The series starts with The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie.
