A wonderful Lord Peter Wimsey mystery. Dorothy Sayers writes as well as Agatha Christie or Ngaio Marsh, and you can pick up this book and not worry that you will find it should be rated "R" before you have gone two chapters. One of those, I couldn't put it down books.
The back cover says: "The wealthy old woman was dead - a trifle soon than expected. The intricate trail of horror and senseless murder led from a beautiful Hampshire village to a fashionable London flat". This is a Lord Peter Wimsey mystery.
Classic Sayers. Fun to read.
From the back cover: "The wealthy old woman was dead-a trifle sooner than expected. The intricate trail of horror and senseless murder led from a beautiful Hampshire village to a fashionable London flat and a deliberate test of amour-staged by the debonair sleuth Lord Peter Wimsey."
Says the New York Times: "Here the modern detective story begins to come into its own; and all the historical importance aside, it remains an absorbing and charming story today."
I haven't read this. I am just tired of murder mysteries and want to get rid of all of these in my collection.
