The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches (Flavia de Luce, #6)

On a spring morning in 1951, eleven-year-old chemist and aspiring detective Flavia de Luce gathers with her family at the railway station, awaiting the return of her long-lost mother, Harriet. Yet upon the train’s arrival in the English village of Bishop’s Lacey, Flavia is approached by a tall stranger who whispers a cryptic message into her ear.

Moments later, he is dead,

Moments later, he is dead, mysteriously pushed under the train by someone in the crowd…

Who was this man, what did his words mean, and why were they intended for Flavia? Back home at Buckshaw, the de Luces’ crumbling estate, Flavia puts her sleuthing skills to the test.

Following a trail of clues sparked by the discovery of a reel of film stashed away in the attic, she unravels the deepest secrets of the de Luce clan, involving none other than Winston Churchill himself.

Surrounded by family, friends, and a famous pathologist from the Home Office – and making spectacular use of Harriet’s beloved Gypsy Moth plane, Blithe Spirit – Flavia will do anything, even take to the skies, to land a killer.

    Thomas Parnell,
    A Night-Piece on Death (1721)

    Alan Bradley must spend a good deal of time combing the dusty poetic tombs of libraries to find the archaic titles for this book series. Whenever a new Flavia book is released, my first order of business is to look in the front of the book for the few lines of poetry he shares; that includes the title of the book. I then usually shake the bones of the poet and read beyond the tasty morsel that Bradley shares. What is interesting about Thomas Parnell is he is one of a group of poets who existed in the 18th century who are commonly referred to as:

    Graveyard Poets

    Or

    Churchyard Poets

    Or

    The Boneyard Boys.

    They were a gloomy, morbid bunch, obsessed with worms, coffins, and skulls. They took their own mortality very personally and bemoaned the end that eventually finds us all. Of course, they were before and certainly influenced the romantic movement and one of my favorite genres, Gothic. I’ve certainly neglected The Boneyard Boys, but I have a feeling that there is a lot of interesting inspiration for my own writing to be had from reading these atmospheric poems.

    But I digress. We are here, of course, to talk about the latest adventures of the almost twelve Flavia de Luce. I have moved from bafflement to absolute acceptance of why I am such a fan of this book series. I don’t read very much YA, nor do I usually enjoy reading about kids. Even when I’m reading biographies, I can’t wait to get through the necessary childhood years and onto the subject’s adulthood life. Now, Flavia is no ordinary kid. She has such a passion for science that she has scoured the library at the family home and also the public libraries for every book about chemistry, natural sciences, and human behavior she could find.

    She also has a particular penchant for stumbling across dead bodies.

    The story begins with her and her family waiting at the train station for the return of her mother after she has been missing for several years. To fully appreciate the evolution of the ongoing story with her mother, please do read the books in order. A tall man approaches Flavia and whispers a coded message in her ear, and moments later he is lying mangled in front of the very train that is bringing her mother home.

    Remember what I said about dead bodies and Flavia?

    Then, to add to her confusion, Winston (or Winnie if you are of the proper circle) Churchill steps off the train and has a baffling conversation with her about pheasant sandwiches. ”Winnie quite often likes to insert himself at the heart of the action, rather like Alfred Hitchcock’s cameo appearances in his own films, but somewhat more risky.”

    Flavia is right smack in the middle of a mystery that has national interests, extending far beyond the reach of even the brilliant resourcefulness of her own dangerously inquisitive mind. She soon learns that her family, the de Luces, have been much more involved in world affairs than she knew. Some have opted for the side of good and others have opted for the side of evil. The question is, who has opted for which?

    I really enjoy the way that Alan Bradley weaves science into the books. The world is a different place for Flavia. She sees things and knows things about everything, which makes the world a much more rich existence for her. She can be bored in church and be thinking about how the stained glass windows were made: ”The yellow scrolls had most likely been achieved with sulfur and calcium, the black letters enameled with a paint compounded in the Middle Ages from a closely guarded formula containing precisely measured amounts of powdered iron or copper oxide, adhesive, and the glassmaker’s own urine.” That is a much more interesting subject to be thinking about rather than contemplating whether your soul is destined for hell. If hell does exist, she could probably explain to us how it is possible.

    Flavia is precocious and overly intelligent, but somehow she is never annoying. She just makes me wish I were smarter, but certainly if I was hanging around her for any length of time, I couldn’t help but become more clever by association.

    There are some jaw dropping revelations towards the end of this book that tempted me to pick the next one up in the series immediately. Flavia’s world is about to be turned upside down and shook until all the Bunsen burners, beakers, pestle and mortars, and test tubes have been liberated from her hands. It is time for this girl, almost twelve, to be given structure and direction.

    I pity the fools who are going to try.

    In which the mystery is solved surrounding the disappearance of Flavia’s mother during World War II. Also in which Alan Bradley prepares to take the series in an entirely new direction. This is a wise move. Life at Buckshaw is growing stale, and it’s time for Flavia to take her chemistry skills out into the wide world.

    In which the mystery is solved surrounding the disappearance of Flavia’s mother during World War II. Also in which Alan Bradley prepares to take the series in an entirely new direction. This is a wise move. Life at Buckshaw is growing stale, and it’s time for Flavia to take her chemistry skills out into the wide world. After all, she is almost twelve years old, and beginning to show signs of growing up.

    This works best as a just-for-fun sort of read. I thought the mystery and its resolution were a bit weak. The set-up is intriguing, with special code phrases and a murder on the train tracks and a revealing old home movie which Flavia discovers and then develops using her chemical cleverness. However, when we finally get to discover why Harriet (Flavia’s mom) disappeared and who was involved, the revelations are sketchy. Bradley doesn’t develop a clear picture (so to speak) of what went down (so to speak) all those years ago, what exactly Harriet’s mission was, and what the villain(s) did.

    What makes the book worth reading is the playfulness you’ve come to expect from the Flavia de Luce series. Yes, Flavia is maturing, but she’s still devious, and her imagination still takes her where no one’s imagination should ever go. In this installment, she toys with the possibility of becoming a young Frankenstein and attempting to reanimate the dead. She decodes secret messages written in bodily fluids. She asks inappropriate questions such as, “How long does it take a person to bleed to death?” And as always, she’s an unrepentant snoop.

    Fans of the series will not be disappointed. I’m looking forward to discovering how Flavia fares as she moves out among people who are not yet familiar with her precocious and pesky ways.

    I spend a year waiting for it and a day reading it. From the first Flavia mystery five years ago, I have been hooked. The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches did not disappoint. There is so much I wish I could say about it, but won’t for fear I will give something away. I will say this, after reading the first lines I said to myself, “I knew it! But I didn’t know it. I didn’t know the half of it.

    Just as Bradley has done in each of the Flavia books as they progress, he brings us deeper into the lives and nature of the characters centered at Buckshaw and Bishops Lacey, but in this latest installment he reveals them to us so that we finally understand what it is that has made them who they are. There is a tenderness in Flavia that has been hinted at before, and spills out in this book. Colonel de Luce is less of a character and more of a grieving husband and father, holding himself together because he has to. We get a pick inside Daffy that is very honest and telling, while Feely remains a bit, well, Feely-like. She’s just so unlikeable! Once again, it’s Dogger that I love. With each book, he turns out to be even more than what we imagined. Even Aunt Felicity is much more interesting than we imagined.

    I can safely say that the action stays closer to home, at Buckshaw, and that we come to some real resolution. The tone of the book is more serious than a Flavia fan is accustomed to, but there is still humor to be found. All the things about Flavia that makes her such an endearing character are still there, but she is forced to know, and deal with, things that are beyond what she wants to, and still, what she wants most is a happy family and a home that’s full of life. Oh, just read it for yourself. Quickly!

    The one thing I can’t determine is if there will be more Flavia books (please yes, please yes). The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches could reasonably end the series (gasp!) or it could mark the beginning of a great deal more to come in the life of Flavia de Luce. I really hope it’s the latter.
