Overview

Thrones, Dominations (Lord Peter Wimsey/Harriet Vane Series) by Dorothy L. Sayers, Jill Paton Walsh

In 1936, Dorothy L. Sayers —considered one of the best mystery writers of the Golden Age—abandoned the last Lord Peter Wimsey detective story. Sixty years later, a copy of the unfinished manuscript was discovered in her agent's safe in London, and award-winning novelist Jill Paton Walsh was commissioned to complete it. The result was the international bestseller Thrones, Dominations.

Now, this irresistible story is back in paperback. Picking up where Sayers left off, Jill Paton Walsh brings Lord Peter and Harriet Vane brilliantly to life in Sayers' unmistakable voice. Thrones, Dominations satisfies the vast readership hungry to know what happened after their honeymoon. Fan and critics rejoice at Jill Paton Walsh's resurrection of this beloved series.

This combined work of DLS and JPW offers us a post-marriage look at Peter and Harriet as they try to merge their dual careers and personalities. An excellent setting for a mixture of joining lives, sleuthing and artistic temperaments, and murder, of course.

This is a well written mystery. I loved every minute of it. Peter Wimsey lives again!

I love Dorothy Sayer's Peter Wimsey books. Being a real fan of Agatha Christie for many years, it may be surprising to some that I only discovered Sayers' Peter and Harriet a few years ago. When I finished Busman's Honeymoon, I was sad to think that I'd miss reading about Peter and Harriet settling into married life. This book then came to my attention and with a little hesitation since it wasn't all Sayers work, I bought it to see how Ms. Patton would proceed. The mystery part of the book wasn't too surprising in it's resolution and yet it held my attention. The more interesting part to me was the developing relationship with Peter and Harriet. It's clear that they are both sensitive to the potential difficulties that their marriage could bring and try extra hard to be understanding and open. That theirs is a marriage that will succeed is clear throughout the story yet the tender moments where they discover a little more about each other's love will make you smile. I like the way it ended. Of course it all works out! I'll now try the next book, A Presumption of Death, to see how Ms. Patton proceeds with the Wimseys.

I enjoyed the book quite well, though it was not too hard to figure out the killer. The writing is good, and I loved the dialogue between Peter and Harriet. I particularly think Harriet's character is well written. A good summer or rainy day read.

Walsh continued on in the Sayers tradition providing an excellent Wimsey and Harriet tale.
