Strong Poison

Strong Poison

The sixth book in Dorothy L Sayers’ classic Lord Peter Wimsey series, introduced by actor Edward Petherbridge – a must-read for fans of Agatha Christie’s Poirot and Margery Allingham’s Campion Mysteries.

‘D. L. Sayers is one of the best detective story writers’ Daily Telegraph

The Crown’s case is watertight. The police are adamant that the right person is on trial. The judge’s summing-up is also clear. Harriet Vane is guilty of the killing her lover. And Harriet Vane shall hang.

‘She brought to the detective novel originality, intelligence, energy and wit.’ P. D. James
