Nicely written and with great characters, I enjoyed these early Lord Peter Wimsey cases very much, and I'll probably continue with the series. The book provided a delightful visit to the England of the early 20th century, and the details of dress, language, fashion, and daily life were fascinating if sometimes a little puzzling, requiring a trip to Google or the dictionary to figure out. I thought the last story, Unnatural Death, was less successful than the first two, mainly due to excessive exposition and deficient plot movement--too many words and too little action.
