Dashing detective Lord Peter Wimsey is caught up in the murder trial of mystery writer Harriet Vane. Her fiance has died of poisoning exactly as described in one of Harriet's novels, so naturally she is the prime suspect. As Peter looks on, he not only falls in love with the accused but eagerly helps with Harriet's defense when the first trial ends in a hung jury. Will she be convicted and executed for the crime, or can he save her life and win her hand in marriage?More

At last Sayers read by Carmichael! Do the rest!
These are my all time favorite recorded books. I have them all on tape but now the world is digital and I have been begging the publishers to bring them out in digital format. Finally they have. I hope Strong Poison is only the first and the rest will be soon on the way. Ian Carmichael is the quintessential Lord Peter Wimsey and he does all the supporting voices to perfection from his perfect "Gentleman's gentleman" Bunter, to the barmaid at the pub with the Dowager Duchess along the way.
I would recommend these to anyone who wants an entertaining, well written story with clever references and perfect narration.
