Editorial Reviews

Saturday Review
“A nearly perfect detective story.”
The Spectator
“Written with distinction and wit, and is as much as psychological story as an experiment in detection. It has all the excitement which a detective story should offer.”
Ruth Rendell
“I admire her novels. . . . She has a great fertility of invention, ingenuity and a wonderful eye for detail.”

Biography

Dorothy L. Sayers, the greatest of the golden age detective novelists, was born in Oxford in 1893. She was one of the first women to be awarded a degree by Oxford University and worked as a copywriter in an advertising agency from 1921 to 1932. Her aristocratic detective, Lord Peter Wimsey, became one of the most popular fictional heroes of the twentieth century. Dorothy L.

    Really enjoyable!

    This is the second of the three novels Sayers wrote about the relationship between Lord Peter and Harriat Vein. In my opinion, it is the most satisfying also. It's a great mystery, and a interesting window into a time gone by.
