The above combination and With Harriet Vane..this is a brilliant book. In typical Sayers style..the mystery unpeels like an omion, in so many layers...Enjoyed the plot and more so the performance. Thanks.
I love the Lord Peter Wimsey books and listening to them could be a real treat if it wasn't for the awful reader. She misses commas, mispronounces words and overall sometimes makes it hard to understand what she is reading. Her French accent has been learned from a computer and she doesn't know what she is saying! Please, please have someone else read these gorgeous books, someone with a more pleasant voice who can actually read? I've got three books read by her and I'm not getting more, not because of the stories - they are fab, that goes without saying - but because of that unpleasant, sharp voice and the total lack of understanding what she's reading.

The book is narrated in a lifeless monotone. Characterisation is particularly poor and and conversational passages are utterly dreadful.
Wimsey is not well served by this joyless rendition.
