They plan to have a quiet country honeymoon. Then Lord Peter
Wimsey and his bride Harriet Vane find the previous owner’s body
in the cellar.
Set in a country village seething with secrets and snobbery, this is
Dorothy L. Sayers’ last full-length detective novel. Variously described
as a love story with detective interruptions and a detective story with
romantic interruptions, it lives up to both descriptions with style.
‘I admire her novels … she has great fertility of invention, ingenuity and
a wonderful eye for detail’ P. D. James
