HAVE HIS CARCASE is the second of Sayer's famous mystery series to involve Harriet Vane, the independent writer with whom Lord Peter Wimsey falls in love. This time Harriet stumbles across a body on a lonely beach, and Lord Peter rides to the rescue. The book contains a great deal of dialogue spoken by a large cast of characters; this plethora of voices poses a real challenge to any narrator. Ian Charmichael, the well-known British actor who played Wimsey in the BBC Television series, for the most part handles the challenge admirably. He stumbles only during conversations between Wimsey and Vane, when it can be difficult to tell who's speaking. Nonethless, this classic is an outright pleasure.
