Mystery & Suspense • 3.5 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2003

At first, the death of a Scottish painter in an artist colony appears to be an unfortunate accident, but it soon develops into a case for murder. Sayers's cunning sleuth, Lord Peter Wimsey, quickly brings six suspects to light, but the difficulty arises in finding who is guilty amid the numerous theories concerning the case. This full-cast audio version produces an energetic reading that perfectly suites Sayers's lighthearted narrative. Ian Carmichael is delightful in his role as Wimsey. His character's amiable demeanor comes through in a warm, playful tone that gives the impression he always has a trick up his sleeve. A talented cast and an intriguing adventure keep the listener guessing throughout. T.D.M. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2009]
