very witty although the language is a little dated - a terrific insight into Britain in the 30's too

A wonderfully written mystery that is not violent per se but intricate in the true Lord Peter Wimsey style. It is too bad that Ms. Sayers did not write more with the two characters as man and wife, as the dialog between them is wonderful. If you like English mysteries you will like this one.

Ah, the perfect honeymoon spot for Lord Peter and his lovely new bride. All starts wonderfully until a body is found in the cellar. So much for taking a vacation from crime solving! Another great book in the Lord Peter Wimsey series. Dorothy Sayers books are all great, I liked this one especially well with all the twists and turns.

Absolutely boring! It takes over 100 pages just to discover the murder. Meanwhile the reader is treated to the mind-numbing details of chimney sweeping and chimney pots. Anyway, all's well that ends (finally). A saving grace is the old Lord Peter penchant for a good bon mot and the quoting of poetry between Lord Peter and Inspector Kirk as they attempt to outdo one another. Bunter continues to be the interminable "Jeeves". Neither one of her better murder mechanics nor better novels.

If there were a higher rating for Dorothy Sayer's books I'd give them that higher rating. Everything she writes, from the Lord Peter mysteries to her religious essays to her splendid translation of The Divine Comedy, is excellent. The mysteries are worth reading and re-reading for their comedy of manners even when one knows just "who did it."
