Dorothy Sayers had completed some composition and notes for this posthumous tale of Peter and Harriet in 1938-39 just before the start of WWII. Naturally there's murder and other messiness. The novel was completed by a sympathetic author in a style very complementary to Sayers' own.

I liked this book but it definitely wasn't a Dorothy L. Sayers. Having read several of her Lord Peter series I have to say that I didn't feel I was reading about Lord Peter at all but maybe a more watered down version. Kind of disappointing.

Lord Peter & Harriett Vane live on in this wonderfully written novel, finished after Dorothy Sayers passed away. Jill Paton Walsh has done a great job of keeping Sayer's "voice" and I have the other books on my wish list. Loved it!

I enjoyed this book very much! Harriet Vane is one of my favorite female characters in all of fiction, and this author captured her spirit so well. You see the inner conflicts of an early feminist seeking balance between marriage and independence. If you like Harriet and Peter, you'll like this book! (And, Bunter gets married to another independent woman!) Be sure to read the next book, too, "A Presumption of Death."
