Speaking from Among the Bones, Paperback


An ancient tomb, a pool of fresh blood - a baffling case for young detective Flavia de Luce. The first thing I saw was a hand, and then the face, a ghastly inhuman mask...'I do believe we've found Mr Collicutt,' I said. When the tomb of St Tancred is opened, no one expects to find the body of the organist, lying in a pool of blood, his handsome features covered by a gas mask.

Eleven-year-old Flavia de Luce is intrigued. Why would anyone want to kill the much-admired organist in such a brutal and bizarre fashion?

Why place his body in the tomb? And what happened to the remains of the previous occupant?

The mystery leads Flavia deep into the past, to a strange story of lost manuscripts and ancient relics...
