Publisher's Summary

A long-awaited Lord Peter Wimsey novel, telling the story of his first case - and his last....
Jill Paton Walsh triumphantly completes Dorothy L. Sayers last unfinished detective novel, featuring Lord Peter Wimsey and his new wife, Harriet Vane.
It is 1936, and Lord Peter Wimsey has returned from his honeymoon to set up home with his cherished new wife, the novelist Harriet Vane.
As they become part of fashionable London society, they encounter the glamorous socialite Rosamund Harwell and her wealthy impresario husband, Laurence. Unlike the Wimseys they are not in love - and all too soon, one of them is dead. A murder case that only Lord Peter Wimsey can solve.

swan song

Positively the last appearance of the rich, intelligent and amusing prose which characterises the late, great Dorothy L Sayers. Faithfully if less skilfully completed by Jill Paton Walsh, one can still recognise and revel in the characters.
Ian Carmichael remains, with Edward Petherbridge, the best available reader of these novels and his loss is sadly felt. A sensitive, well paced performance of a delightful novel with touches of the ingenious.

Beautifully read

I enjoyed this story: you cannot tell where Sayers finishes and Jill Paton Walsh begins. Ian Carmichael had played Lord Peter Wimsey on television and he inhabits the character demonstrating that Lord Peter Wimsey books really sound better when read by a man.
