When blood stains his family name, Lord Peter fights to save what he holds most dear After three months in Corsica, Lord Peter Wimsey has begun to forget that the gray, dangerous moors of England ever existed. But traveling through Paris, he receives a shock that jolts him back to reality. He sees it in the headlines splashed across every English paper—his brother Gerald has been arrested for murder. The trouble began at the family estate in Yorkshire, where Gerald was hunting with the man soon to be his brother-in-law, Captain Denis Cathcart. One night, Gerald confronts Cathcart with allegations about his unsavory past, leading the captain to call off the wedding. Just a few hours later, Cathcart is dead, with Gerald presumed to be the only one who could have fired the fatal shot. The clock is ticking, and only England’s premier sleuth can get to the bottom of this murky mystery.

Dorothy L Sayers was born in Oxford in 1893, and was both a classical scholar and a graduate in modern languages. As well as her popular Lord Peter Wimsey series, she wrote several religious plays, but considered her translations of Dante's Divina Commedia to be her best work. She died in 1957.From AudioFile:
Lord Peter Wimsey brings his investigations close to home when called to solve questions in a murder in which his brother-in-law, the Duke of Denver, is the main suspect. The abridgment necessitates careful listening to keep track of the storyline. Petherbridge portrays a perfect Wimsey, his own role for the BBC television series, but other characters and the background narration are less distinguished. The reader delivers the final summation in court with great energy and a sparkling presentation of motives and emotions. The overall effect will amuse Sayers's fans. R.F.W.
