Poisoned port … pet cats in peril … purloined pearls … Lord Peter Wimsey solves the mysteries of the man who was blown into the fourth dimension and the murder in fancy dress. He pursues miscreants across several countries and into unexpected hiding places. Dorothy L. Sayers‘ other detective, Montague Egg, encounters a fugitive murderer and uncovers a killer in an Oxford cloister. The travelling salesman extraordinaire solves puzzles with a unique combination of matter-of-fact practicality and brilliant deduction.
Band 9 der Serie. “Don’t try to solve the mystery — Sayers doesn’t necessarily play fair with her clues in this format — but enjoy the writing style that is very much tied to its time and place, where how the characters present themselves is a major part of the fun.” (Leser) (45 Rezensionen / 4,4 Sterne), 260 Seiten noch günstig?

When his sexton finds a corpse in the wrong grave, the rector of Fenchurch St Paul asks Lord Peter Wimsey to find out who the dead man was and how he came to be there. The lore of bell-ringing and a brilliantly-evoked village in the remote fens of East Anglia are the unforgettable background to a story of an old unsolved crime and its violent unravelling twenty years later.
Band 11 der Serie. Das war einer meiner Lieblingsbücher mit Lord Peter Wimsey, ich habe es mehrfach auf Deutsch und auf Englisch gelesen. “The first time I read this, the denouement was shocking, breathtaking. On subsequent reads you find more and more subtlety, more and more careful characterisation.” (Leser) (180 Rezensionen / 4,2 Sterne), 388 Seiten noch günstig?
