Publisher's Summary

Stormbound over the New Year at a Fenland rectory, Lord Peter Wimsey willingly lends a hand in the ringing of a New Year's Eve peal of the church bells. Some months later a handless, disfigured corpse is discovered in a fresh grave in the churchyard.
Lord Peter receives a plea for help from the rector and embarks on one of his most complicated investigations - for this is not the first crime the village has experienced. Fifteen years ago the Wilbraham Emeralds were stolen, and they are still missing. Can there be any link?

Old school

The cast features many old-school British actors and some cracking scenery-chewing performances in minor roles. My only criticism would be that the text is very much abridged and if you’re a big fan of the novel you will notice the loss.
