9780062307545: Whose Body? (Lord Peter Wimsey Mysteries)

This is the original 1923 edition of WHOSE BODY? first published in the United States by Boni and Liveright in 1923 and then in the UK by Unwin. The US copyright for this edition expired and was not renewed as required in the 28th year after initial publication. Since this book was first published in the US and not later renewed, the expired copyright is not eligible for GATT restoration.

Lord Peter is intrigued by the sudden appearance of a naked dead body in the bath and investigates. A financier has also gone missing under strange circumstances and it becomes clear that the two events are linked in some way. A hired man has just found a corpse in the bath in his flat: a body wearing nothing but a pair of pince-nez. In the meantime, the financier has apparently disappeared into thin air from his own bedroom. Ignoring the clumsy efforts of the official investigator, Lord Peter starts his own enquiry. Can he solve this mysterious disappearance and even more mysterious murder?
