Publisher's Summary

In a shocking scandal, the likes of which has not been seen in the English aristocracy since the 18th century, the Duke of Denver stands accused of the foul murder or his sister's fiancé, shot through the heart on a cold, lonely night at Riddlesdale Hall in Yorkshire. The duke's brother, Lord Peter Wimsey, attempts to prove Denver's innocence, but why is the duke refusing to cooperate? And what does his sister, Lady Mary, know about the affair? Trying to reveal the truth, Wimsey uncovers a web of lies and deceit within the family and finds himself faced with the unhappy alternative of sending either his brother or his sister to the gallows - until he himself becomes a target.

Detection with Class!

Lord Peter is the ultimate English Upper Class Detective, and Ian Carmichael does a great job of portraying him, and the other characters in this novel. Dorothy Sayers is one of the "Queens of Crime" of the Golden Age detection, and I am glad to see that Audible seems to be re-releasing the unabridged versions of this series. Don't waste your time on any abridged versions, they loose the beauty of Sayers's prose.

Highly recommended. May the series continue to be released until all of Sayers's detective novels and short stories are available.

Ian Carmichael is the quintessential Wimsey.

A terrific classic of the golden age. The way in which three of the characters' stories get intertwined produces a very enjoyable mystery. The class distinctions of the English nobility, as well as some of the consequences of the First World War, are mixed up with the funny and erudite deductions of Lord Peter. As for Mr. Carmichael's narration, he is truly the quintessential Wimsey. He gets the spirit and tone of the book perfectly. Highly recommended. Can't wait to continue with the series.
