Set in 1950s England, but written in the twenty-first century. It's strange how times I've lived through are becoming settings for newly-written historical works.
Flavia, 12, is very bright, especially in chemistry (and has her grandfather's chemistry lab and equipment, which she has so far avoided blowing up). So, a forensic-oriented detective. (I'm sure her age varies through the books, and I wrote this after reading the fifth one which is what I found first.)
