Description of this Book

It is 1936 and Lord Peter Wimsey has returned from his honeymoon to set up home with his cherished new wife, the novelist Harriet Vane. As they become part of fashionable London society they encounter the glamorous socialite Rosamund Harwell and her wealthy impressario husband Laurence. Unlike the Wimseys, they are not in love - and all too soon, one of them is dead. A murder case that only Lord Peter Wimsey can solve.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Jill Paton Walsh has...given us a Lord Peter story in the true Sayers' style and tradition - Norma Major - The Week on Thrones, Dominations An engrossing, intelligent and provocative novel in the guise of a conventional mystery. - Joyce Carol Oates, New York Times Book Review Could this be the best book Dorothy L. Sayers never wrote? She has done a splendid job - certain to please the legions of Sayers loyalists as well as readers new to the Wimsey canon . . . Lord Peter has been made much more human and interesting by marriage. . . and the story is full of twists and connivance. - Chicago Tribune on THRONES, DOMINATIONS An admirable page-turner with some fascinating detail - Publishing News
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 2 stars (out of 5)

Author's Bio

Dorothy L Sayers was born in Oxford in 1893, and was both a classical scholar and a graduate in modern languages. As well as her popular Lord Peter Wimsey series, she wrote several religious plays, but considered her translations of Dante's Divina Commedia to be her best work. She died in 1957. Jill Paton Walsh, born in 1937, is the author of five novels for adults: the fourth of these, Knowledge of Angels, was shortlisted for the Booker Prize. Before writing for adults she made a career as a writer of children's books and has won many literary prizes. In addition she is the author of two crime novels: The Wyndahm Case and A Piece of Justice, which was shortlisted for the Crime Writers' Association Gold Dagger Award. These novels feature Imogen Guy, the college nurse at St Agatha's College, Cambridge, as her heroine.
