really liked it
William + Lavinia
It seems Captain Geminus has almost been murdered by a close client, his daughter’s tutor Aristo. Flavia is determined to solve the mystery, but it is her friends that really do, since she is emotionally involved. African Nubia believes Aristo did not commit the crime, but fiery Flavia counters her with the fact that Nubia is in love with him. Jewish Jonathan thinks Flavia should give Nubia a chance to say her reason, but Flavia does not listen. She’s so sad because she knows how much pain he’s
They follow him on horses controlled by Nubia, an animal-lover. When the carriage breaks down, they have to sell it and sit on the horses’ backs. Flavia complains it’s too bumpy, but her friends urge her on, comforting her.
One green, rainy night, Nubia slips out from the camp-site and meets secretly with their handsome young tutor. He trusts her, and knows she knows he didn’t do it. Nubia wishes she would ask him who did, but can’t break herself from such a wonderful moment.
When they catch Aristo and his brother Dion who had been following him, Dion confesses. Aristo was always the golden boy, he explains, and he wanted the attention, so in madness, he attempted to kill the man sleeping in Aristo’s bed, which happened to be Flavia’s father. Captain Geminus was in Aristo’s room so he wouldn’t have to pass him and wake him on his way out in the morning. Dion took a dagger and stabbed the man until he thought he was dead and tried to strangle the body until it fell limp. Then Aristo heard the commotion and ran to Captain Geminus. Dion fled, and Aristo picked up the bloody knife, realising who it belonged to. Unfortunately, he wasn’t the only one who had heard the trouble. The servants had to, and seeing Aristo with the knife, arrested him.
But Aristo escaped and ran after his brother. The four children had set out to look for Aristo when really it was Dion who committed the crime. Dion showed so much mercy and forgiveness that Flavia said she wouldn’t take him to court, but wouldn’t stop her father if he did. And everyone was content. Flavia’s father slowly recovered and was soon walking again.
Falvia, ihr Vater und ihre Freunde machen Pause in einem Gasthaus als Aristo zu ihnen stößt. Er hat Urlaub bei seinen Eltern gemacht und bittet nurn Falvias Vater seinen Vertrag als Flavias Lehrer aufzulösen. Die beiden wollen das privat besprechen aber in der Nacht hört man plötzlich einen Schrei: Falvias Vater wurde niedergestochen und Aristo flüchtet.
Zunächst will Flavia sich nicht an die Lösung dieses Rätsels machen, da sie sich um ihren Vater kümmern will, aber schon bald stellt sich heraus

it was ok
Older Children/Teens into Mysteries
The front cover attracted me
The series started to dwindle at this point, and this book was no better. In fact it was my least favourite of the set.
The two decent parts to this book, winning the two stars, were actually within the storyline. The action surrounding Flavia’s father being stabbed brought pace to the novel, and finally meeting Lupus’s mother was worthwhile too.
However the whole Lupus’s mother being able to give prophecies was weird. It annoyed me that all Flavia had to do was mourn and weep over her father’s co
