Publisher's Summary

Can Lord Peter Wimsey prove that Harriet Vane is not guilty of murder--or find the real poisoner in time to save her from the gallows?
Impossible, it seems. The Crown's case is watertight. The police are adamant that the right person is on trial. The judge's summing up is also clear. Harriet Vane is guilty of killing her lover. And Harriet Vane shall hang.
But the jury disagrees.

Classic crime

Good story, slightly spoilt at times by strange pronunciation of words and very odd phrasing of sentences.

Did she do it?

Introducing Harriet Vane, this is a classic mystery. Romance, espionage, spiritualism & spinsters all play a part in one of the most challenging cases of Lord Peter's career.
