5.0 out of 5 stars More than just a mystery this is England Oct. 30 2013
By bernie TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Dorothy L. Sayers writes many non-fiction books however among her best is the Lord Peter Wimsey series. I came to this series sort of though the back door. My first taste was the BBC productions with Petherbridge as Lord Peter that can now be found on DVD movie. So I read all of Dorothy's books containing the relationship of Lord Peter Wimsey and Harriet Vane. Now it is time to go through the whole series.

Lord Peter returns from Corsica. To find his older brother the Duke of Denver practically accused of murder. What is worse is his brother is not talking. So it is up to Peter to find out what happened and clear his brother.

In the process he puts his foot in it and practically gets all his relatives and friends accused. As with all Sayers' stories nothing is simple there are overlapping plots and foolish deeds, as if Peter can not figure them out. On the side we learn a little about English society and ballistics.

4.0 out of 5 stars If only they'd let Petherbridge read more... April 17 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio Cassette
Sayers is one of my favorite mystery authors, and Petherbridge's portrayal of Whimsey one of my favorite childhood memories -- it was the series starring him on Mystery that got me reading Sayers in the first place. I snapped up this audio the instant I found it, and only wish that they had allowed him to do it unabridged. Fans of the show will appreciate Petherbridge's ability to mimic his co-stars voices with unobtrusive smoothness. Newbies will enjoy the fact that he is one of the few male narrators who can read a female character without a single grate on the nerves; he somehow feminizes his voice without sounding false or fakey. I recommed any audio he narrates.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wimsey's a Winner June 12 2003
By oh_pete
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The entire Denver clan's good name is at stake when Lord Peter Wimsey's older brother is accused of murdering their sister's fiancee one fine October night. The task is made no easier since Lord Peter is on vacation at the time and since he returns to find the pig-headed Duke providing very little assistance to his own defense. Sayers does a fine job of balancing family tensions, differing testimony, and various attempts at hiding the truth in this entertaining second novel in the Wimsey series. The multi-layered motivations of her characters and the several sharp and plausible twists in the plot keep the pages turning.
Sayers' writing is always textured and witty, and her Riddlesdale Lodge is just the type of country house an Anglophile mystery reader will enjoy spending a few days. After three Wimsey mysteries I am undeniably hooked, but will spread out my reading of the other eight or nine so as to savor them over a long period.
