The sterling Ian Carmichael has a cadre of accents and voices that superbly portray the working class and upper crust of British society, and in Sayers's Lord Peter Wimsey's mysteries his accessible vocal impersonations are a perfect fit. Soon after Lord Peter and his Bloomsbury bride Harriet Vane arrive at their new country house for their honeymoon, the previous owner's body is discovered. Carmichael effortlessly glides among the characters, and his reading only occasionally reaches a speed that is difficult to comprehend. Each portrayal includes a unique voice, though Bunter, the butler, is particularly memorable and funny. This outstanding finale to Sayers's detective fiction is a lighthearted, sharp, and scintillating listening experience. S.C.A. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 03]
