    Story
    (48)

    Oscar Finley: street cop turned street lawyer. Wally Figg: expert hustler and ambulance-chaser. David Zinc: Harvard Law School graduate. Together, this unlikely trio make up Finley & Figg: specialists in injury claims, quickie divorces and DUIs. None of them has ever faced a jury in federal court. But they are about to take on one of the biggest pharmaceutical companies in the States.

    Story

    I expected a little bit more action from this, especially after the beginning, which was intriguing. Got lost in the middle with all the paperwork, but listened to the end just to find out what happened. All in all, a fairly flat book, both in terms of the content and the performance.

    Story

    In 1998, Jill Paton Walsh completed Dorothy L. Sayers' last, unfinished Lord Peter Wimsey novel, Thrones, Dominations, to widespread praise. Although Sayers never began another Wimsey novel, she did leave clues. A series of letters from members of the Wimsey family was published in the Spectator in 1939 and 1940, and several short stories later collected in Striding Folly would follow. But until now, no one has really known what happened to them all.

    Overall

    This is not all DL Sayers, but it captures the essential essence of the times, humour and language that she created with Lord Peter Wimsey in the 1930's. This story lets fans spend some married life time with Harriet and Peter, and if you are a fan of the 100% DL Sayers Harriet and Peter books it is rather lovely. But if you are in doubt, read the earlier books first, esp. Gaudy Night and Busman's Honeymoon. A Huge bonus here is the excellent reading by Edward Petherbridge, who brilliantly played Wimsey in a BBC TV dramatisation of the later Wimsey books, screened in the mid 1980's. He gets Wimsey spot on. If only he had read the other books too!
