Mystery & Suspense • 3.25 hrs. • Audio Program • © 1975

The cast of this audio program, featuring the sleuthing talents of British aristocrat Lord Peter Wimsey, revels in Dorothy Sayers’s wonderful language. Listeners will find themselves chuckling at the oh-so-upper-crust turns of phrase of Lord Peter and the descriptions of the various Hampshire characters. Miss Climpson is as admirable of enunciation as she is indomitable in her assistance to the investigation. Just one complaint: The amusement is interrupted often by the announcement of the cast and author and title. Perhaps the intent is to mimic a weekly radio show, but, ultimately, the device is distracting. B.H.B. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2011]
