9780062311917: The Unpleasantness at the Bellona Club: A Lord Peter Wimsey Mystery

The dignified calm of the Bellona Club is shattered when Lord Peter Wimsey finds General Fentiman dead in his favourite chair. A straighforward death by natural causes? Perhaps...but why can no-one remember seeing the general the day he died? And, who is the mysterious Mr. Oliver? Lord Peter moves between London and Paris, salon and suburbs, to unfold the intriguing case. The elegant, intelligent amateur sleuth Lord Peter Wimsey is one of detective literature's most popular creations. Ian Carmichael is the personification of Dorothy L. Sayers' charming investigator in this BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation.

Review:

She brought to the detective novel originality, intelligence, energy and wit. ( P. D. James)

Her books are English Literature at its best. Her plots are finely tuned and her Lord Peter Wimsey is delightful ( The Times (letter))

I admire her novels . . . she has great fertility of invention, ingenuity and a wonderful eye for detail ( Ruth Rendell)

D. L. Sayers is one of the best detective story writers. ( E. C. Bentley, Daily Telegraph)

Book Description Bourbon Street Books, United States, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reissue. 201 x 132 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. 90-year-old General Fendman was definitely dead, but no one knew exactly when he had died -- and the time of death was the determining factor in a half-million-pound inheritance. Lord Peter Wimsey would need every bit of his amazing skills to unravel the mysteries of why the General s lapel was without a red poppy on Armistice Day, how the club s telephone was fixed without a repairman, and, most puzzling of all, why the great man s knee swung freely when the rest of him was stiff with rigor mortis.
