From the Back Cover:

Dorothy L. Sayers, long considered one of the top mystery authors of our day, has excelled herself in this delightfully macabre tale which centers around the disappearance of a wealthy financier and the discovery of a nude corpse, wearing a golden pince-nez, in a bathtub. Sayer's most renowned amateur detective, the engaging and amusing Lord Peter Wimsey, sets out to unravel this puzzling case under the jealous eye of Scotland Yard. Needless to say he succeeds in solving things to everyone's ultimate satisfaction, but only after a series of bloodcurdling and hair-raising episodes that will hold you spellbound with anticipation.

Here is a truly rare find for anyone who is interested in top-flight crime fiction. The New York Times said of this book "the tale is better written, and has a good deal more characterization than one finds in the average detective story".

About the Author:

British novelist, essayist, and medieval scholar, Dorothy Sayers (1893-1957) ranks with Agatha Christie as a defining author of the classic English detective novel. Sayers was among the first women to receive an Oxford degree, and her translations of Dante remain in wide circulation.
