In A Presumption of Death, Jill Paton Walsh tells how World War II changed the lives of Peter, Harriet and their growing family. The story opens in 1940. Harriet Vane - now Lady Peter Wimsey - has taken her children to safety in the country. But the war has followed them: glamorous RAF pilots and even more glamorous land-girls scandalise the villagers; the blackout makes the nighttime lanes as sinister as the back alleys of London.

All Lord Peter's friends have been waiting for over 50 years to hear how it developes between Harriet & him - and here we have a storyteller who really is living with Harriet & Peter - and makes us live with them again. Finally! Wonderful reading - a very good continuation of Ian Carmichael's undying performances!
