I AM HALF SICK OF SHADOWS (édition en anglais)

Auteur : Alan Bradley

If ever there was a sleuth whos bold, brilliant, and yes, adorable, its Flavia de Luce.– USA Today Its Christmastime, and Flavia de Luce–an eleven-year-old sleuth with a passion for chemistry–is tucked away in her laboratory, whipping up a concoction to ensnare Saint Nick. But she is soon distracted when a film crew arrives at Buckshaw, the de Luces decaying English estate, to shoot a movie starring the famed Phyllis Wyvern. Amid a raging blizzard, the entire village of Bishops Lacey gathers at Buckshaw to watch Wyvern perform, yet nobody is prepared for the evenings shocking conclusion: a body found strangled to death with a length of film. But who among the assembled guests would stage such a chilling scene? As the storm worsens and the list of suspects grows, Flavia must ferret out a killer hidden in plain sight.
