Publisher's Summary

The elegant, intelligent amateur sleuth Lord Peter Wimsey is one of detective literature's most popular creations. Ian Carmichael is the personification of Dorothy L. Sayers' charming investigator in this BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation. The dignified calm of the Bellona Club is shattered when Lord Wimsey finds General Fentiman dead in his favourite chair. A straighforward death by natural causes? Perhaps... but why can no one remember seeing the general the day he died? And who is the mysterious Mr Oliver? Lord Peter moves between London and Paris, salon and suburbs, to unfold the intriguing case.

Classic Cozy Mystery

Ms Sayers detective stories are in the cozy mystery camp, not violent and sex is alluded to, not described.

This one is a performance piece with Ian Carmichael as Lord Peter. It's entirely enjoyable and a relaxing listen. My only complaint is that Audible hasn't provided the entire Lord Peter series.

The ultimate Wimsey performance

If you're a fan of Lord Peter, these dramatisations are the must-have series. Over the years I've had them on audio tape, CD and now have them downloaded. They're a pleasure to listen to. The later books ready by Edward Petherbridge are extremely well read too - it's not hard to picture him as Lord Peter obviously, as he played him in the TV adaptation in the 80s. However, as far as a full cast option goes, these are brilliant.
