Back in July, we gave a preview of Alan Bradley's newest Flavia de Luce novel, I Am Half-Sick of Shadows, including a truly charming excerpt ("Ali-kazam!").

The fourth novel in Bradley's series finds plucky, 11-year-old sleuth Flavia in the middle of a holiday mystery. A film company is shooting a movie at her family’s estate, and the star shows up strangled.

Now that the season of Christmastime murder-mysteries is upon us, you can get to know Alan Bradley a little better through our Meet the Author interview:

Merry Christmas to Flavia -- and happy hunting! Check out the book trailer from Random House:
