Publisher's Summary

Sayers' most renowned amateur detective, the engaging and amusing Lord Peter Wimsey, sets out to unravel a puzzling case involving the disappearance of a wealthy financier and the discovery of a nude corpse, wearing a golden pince-nez, in a bathtub. He does succeed in solving things to everyone's ultimate satisfaction, but only after a series of bloodcurdling and hair-raising episodes that will hold the listener spellbound with anticipation. Dorothy L. Sayers, long considered one of the top mystery authors of our day, has excelled herself in this delightfully macabre tale, a truly rare find for anyone interested in top-flight crime fiction.


What the Critics Say

"The tale is better written and has a good deal more characterization than one finds in the average detective story." ( New York Times)

totally inappropriate narration

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

I like the book enormously, but found the narration impossible. I gave up listening before the end of the third chapter, and have deleted it from my mp3 player to free space for something worth while.

What was most disappointing about Dorothy L. Sayers’s story?

The story is fine, but not as performed in this version - choose another narrator and enjoy it!

What didn’t you like about Nadia May’s performance?

The voices given to Wimsey and Bunter were completely inappropriate. Wimsey is a cultivated, upper class Englishman, not a vulgar cheeky chappy, and Bunter should be a properly self-effacing gentleman's gentleman.

Any additional comments?

I won't be buying other books narrated by Nadia May.

terrible reading!

The reader of this is really not a very good reader. I found her extremely difficult to listen to.
