Publisher's Summary

When copywriter Victor Dean falls to his death on the stairs of Pym's Advertising Agency, everyone assumes it was an unfortunate accident. His replacement doesn't think so and begins asking a lot of questions. The new man is something of a mystery to his colleagues, and he certainly dresses well considering his meagre writer's salary.Of course the new copywriter is none other than Lord Peter Wimsey, working incognito to uncover the truth behind what is certainly murder. In between writing catchy slogans, Wimsey sets out to catch the murderer and finds a network of blackmailers, drug pushers, and killers.But the deeper he gets into this criminal underworld, the more his own life is in danger. And as the murders increase, he must work to a tight deadline if he is to solve the case before it's too late.

Abridging books is like amputation.

This is one of my favorite books ever. This acted out performance of it is an amputation of it's most delightful parts. Ouch!
Somewhere someone should do an audible book of Murder Must Advertise. This is an unfortunate cousin with its toes cut off at the knee.

London in the 1920's

Ever wonder what London was like in the 1920's? D. Sayers has given us a magnificent view with Lord Peter posing as Death Bredon, his lookalike relative, secretly investigating a murder at an advertising agency. Lots of suspects, loose glitterati, and wild drug parties, not to mention funny ads in newspapers. The audio is clear as a bell and the acting will keep you on the edge of your seat. Great sound effects make this a tremendous buy. Thanks Audible, for giving us Ian Carmichael at his very best. Now for the next audio program in this series?
