Mystery & Suspense • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1930

Dorothy Sayers's Lord Peter Wimsey ranks among the world's great fictional detectives. In this story he joins forces for the first time with the one true love of his life, Harriet Vane, who is on trial for poisoning her fiancé when Wimsey meets her. Not only does Wimsey believe in her innocence, he falls in love with her at first sight. Cleverly he brings home the case for her. Here his adventure is ably recounted by Ian Carmichael, who portrayed Wimsey skillfully for PBS's "Mystery!" He is no less adroit here, capturing Wimsey down to his pince-nez, and being equally adept at the minor characters, particularly the deep-voiced Harriet. Sayers's fans and others who like a good mystery well told will be charmed by this special audiobook. T.H. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 00]
