Publisher's summary

After a corpse wearing pince-nez glasses is found in a bathtub, Lord Peter Wimsey undertakes the case and investigates the deed privately. But determining whether the corpse belongs to a well-known banker or a group of mischief-making medical students is just the beginning of this tangled mystery plot.

This atmospheric novel put Dorothy L. Sayers in the ranks with Agatha Christie as a mystery writer nonpareil.

It’s the Britishness of it all

I found the pleasure in Sayer’s story to be the wry, detailed view she provides of Britain’s disappearing class system in post-WW I England. And, altho Sayers pokes a little fun at Conan Doyle’s style, her own story here commits the error of Full-on Giant Confession at the end. But, never mind, a fun listen by a talented writer.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
