All I want for Christmas is Flavia! Just in time for the holidays comes the fourth book in the New York Times bestselling series that is one of the most lauded mystery debuts—starring "one of the most remarkable creations in recent literature" (USA Today).

Colonel de Luce, in desperate need of funds, rents his beloved estate of Buckshaw to a film company. They will be shooting a movie over the Christmas holidays, filming scenes in the decaying manse with a reclusive star. She is widely despised, so it is to no one's surprise when she turns up murdered, strangled by a length of film from one of her own movies! With a blizzard raging outside and Buckshaw locked in, the house is full of suspects. But Flavia de Luce is more than ready to put aside her investigations into the existence of Father Christmas to solve this yuletide country-house murder.

"Bradley's third book about tween sleuth Flavia de Luce will make readers forget about Nancy Drew."

"Flavia de Luce rides out of the pages of Alan Bradley's new mystery and straight into our hearts. . . . [Bradley] has created one of the most endearing protagonists the traditional mystery genre, typified by the works of Agatha Christie, has seen in a very long time. . . . With this, his third novel in the Flavia de Luce series, Bradley . . . secures his position as a confident, talented writer and storyteller."
