For a needed escape, Dogger, the loyal family servant, suggests a boating trip for Flavia and her two older sisters. As their punt drifts past the church where a notorious vicar had recently dispatched three of his female parishioners by spiking their communion wine with cyanide, Flavia, an expert chemist with a passion for poisons, is ecstatic. Suddenly something grazes her fingers as she dangles them in the water. She clamps down on the object, imagining herself Ernest Hemingway battling a marlin, and pulls up what she expects will be a giant fish. But in Flavia@00000065@s grip is something far better: a human head, attached to a human body. If anything could take Flavia@00000065@s mind off sorrow, it is solving a murder--although one that may lead the young sleuth to an early grave.@00000341@@00000341@@00000327@Praise for @00000373@The Grave@00000065@s a Fine and Private Place@00000155@@00000133@@00000341@@00000341@@00000041@ldquo;Flavia [is] irrepressible, precocious and indefatigable. . . .
