A Presumption of Death

Krimi von Jill Paton Walsh und Dorothy L. Sayers

The story opens in 1940. Harriet Vane – now Lady Peter Wimsey – has taken her children to safety in the country. But the war has followed them: glamorous RAF pilots and even more glamorous land-girls scandalise the villagers; the blackout makes the night-time lanes as sinister as the back alleys of London.

Band 2 der Serie. Die Handlung hat Jill Paton Walsh alleine verfasst, die Briefe hat Dorothy L. Sayers 1939/40 in The Spectator veröffentlicht. “Jill Paton Walsh excels as Ms Sayers‘ posthumous voice. As before the two authors blend seamlessly and the intricately woven plot would grace anything from the golden age of detective writing.” (Norfolk Journal) (172 Rezensionen / 4,1 Sterne), 388 Seiten noch günstig?

The Attenbury Emeralds

Krimi von Jill Paton Walsh

It was 1921 when Lord Peter Wimsey first encountered the Attenbury emeralds. The recovery of the magnificent gem in Lord Attenbury’s most dazzling heirloom made headlines – and launched a shell-shocked young aristocrat on his career as a detective. Now it is 1951: a happily married Lord Peter has just shared the secrets of that mystery with his wife, the detective novelist Harriet Vane. Then the new young Lord Attenbury – grandson of Lord Peter’s first client – seeks his help again, this time to prove who owns the gigantic emerald that Wimsey last saw in 1921.

Band 3 der Serie. “Jill Paton Walsh, assuming the mantle of Dorothy L. Sayers, convinces on all counts….Sayers would not have recognised that [THE ATTENBURY EMERALDS] wasn’t her own work.” (The London Times) (249 Rezensionen / 4,2 Sterne), 351 Seiten noch günstig?
