Thrice The Brinded Cat Hath Mew’d, Alan Bradley

Flavia’s triumphant return from Canada just in time for Christmas is anything but. Her father has fallen ill and Dr. Darby won’t allow any hospital visits.

Feely and Dieter have had a bust up and Undine is using Buckshaw like a jungle gym, abetted by Dogger. 

Fleeing the estate at the earliest opportunity and on an errand for the Vicar’s wife Flavia discovers a body and a cat. The perfect antidote to her concerns about Colonel De Luce (the body, not the cat) Flavia enlists Mildred Bannerman, former chemistry teacher at Miss Bodycote’s Academy as her ally in this curious tale of science, storytellers, witches and murder.
