Publisher's Summary

Society's eligible women are in mourning. Lord Peter Wimsey has married at last, having finally succeeded in his ardent pursuit of the lovely mystery novelist Harriet Vane. The two depart for a tranquil honeymoon in a country farmhouse but find, instead of a well-prepared love nest, the place left in a shambles by the previous owner. His sudden appearance, dead from a broken skull in the cellar, only prompts more questions. 

Why would anyone have wanted to kill old Mr. Noakes? What dark secrets had he to hide? 

The honeymoon is over, as Lord Peter and Harriet Vane start their investigations. Suspicion is rife, and everyone seems to have something to hide, from the local constable to the housekeeper. Wimsey and his wife can think of plenty of theories, but it's not until they discover a vital fact that the identity of the murderer becomes clear.

At Last!

I have owned the audio cassette version of Ian Carmichael's narration of Busman's Honeymoon for years, and the cassettes are getting rather the worse for wear. I was delighted to see Audible make this available.

I love all the Lord Peter novels and short stories, and this one is near the top of my list. From the opening letters, to the end if the tale, I enjoy it very much.

Now, I hope that Audible will make the remainder of the series available in unabridged version. The dramatized versions are fun, but nothing like having "all the words!)

More Peter please

Every time I sign on to Audible the first thing I check for is a new Dorothy Sayers release. So I was delighted when Busman's Holiday appeared with Harriet and Peter. My tradition will not change however--now I am waiting for Nine Tailors, Have His Carcase, Gaudy Night, Five Red Herrings and more. Read by Ian Carmichael of course.

I love these books!

Please, please add the rest of the Dorothy L Sayers books, particularly the ones read by Ian Carmichael. There are still many fans of these books whose audiotape versions are falling apart.
