Torna la terribile e precocissima detective undicenne Flavia de Luce, con la sua passione pericolosa per la chimica e per la soluzione di omicidi misteriosi. Siamo sempre nella magica atmosfera della campagna inglese degli anni Cinquanta, e questa volta Flavia si ritrova alle prese con ben due morti, separate nel tempo ma collegate nel più inverosimile dei modi. Proprio quando la nostra eroina pensava che la sua carriera di investigatrice fosse finita, l'adorato burattinaio Rupert Porson ha uno sfortunato e fatale appuntamento con la corrente elettrica attraverso le corde che reggono le sue marionette di legno. Ma chi può aver voluto una cosa del genere e perché? La vicenda è talmente curiosa che Flavia lascia perdere i suoi esperimenti chimici e i suoi progetti vendicativi contro le sorelle maggiori Ophelia e Daphne e, inforcata la fidata bicicletta Gladys, parte dall'antica magione di famiglia decisa a risolvere questi misteri mortali..

Jack Johnson's To The Sea debuted at number one in the US in 2010 and topped the charts in five other countries. Recorded again in two solar-powered studios, the material on this album broadened out the range of instrumentation with more electric guitar and was even a bit heavier than what was expected from Johnson. Nonetheless fans embraced this new sound, giving Johnson another US gold and Canadian platinum album. G. Love guests on harmonica on two tracks.

For the first time in his career Jack Johnson recorded outside of his home turf of Hawaii. He picked a location no less sunny, however: a solar-powered studio in Los Angeles. While the location might have been different, the outcome was the same: another smash hit for Johnson, another million-seller in the US and another number one album in six countries. Sleep Through The Static took on a darker, more sombre tone as Johnson dedicated the album to his late cousin and wrote about feelings of grief and loss he was experiencing.

Jack Hody Johnson is Hawaii-born singer-songwriter and guitarist. He is known primarily for his work in the soft rock and acoustic genres. The title On And On is an apt description of Jack Johnson's sales and chart triumphs with this album. Johnson's second release was his second million-selling album in the US, also certified platinum in the UK and gold in Canada. The success of his debut was a long, slow build, taking time for word to spread. So lots of fans were primed for this follow-up in 2003 which wasn't a vast departure musically from the breezy, laid-back acoustic tunes of the debut, although some of the songs touched on more serious topical issues like materialism in America and war.

Jack Johnson accepted the challenge of writing a collection of children's songs to accompany the animated film version of Curious George released in 2006. The resulting soundtrack album went to number one in the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand and became a US million seller. Since Curious George doesn't speak in the movie, the monkey's voice is only heard through Johnson's songs. This required Johnson to research the perspective of an inquisitive monkey. After reading the screenplay, he studied sketches of Curious George until the music came to him. Guests include Ben Harper, G. Love and Matt Costa.

Arthur Sullivan always wanted to be known more as a serious composer than one of comic opera, and his Symphony in E minor ("Irish") and his grand opera Ivanhoe, immensely popular in its own time, have been revived in recent decades. The same cannot be said of his songs, which are all but unknown except for The Lost Chord. That chestnut is not even included on this expansive two-disc survey, a highly worthwhile look into Sullivan the song composer.
