Review:

'A delight.' (Irish Times)

Sayers's fans won't be disappointed, and newcomers are in for a treat (Laura Wilson, Guardian)

Sayers would not have recognised that it wasn't her own work. (Marcel Berlins, The Times)

A great deal of fun. (Natasha Cooper TLS)

An absolute treat: civilised, intelligent and spellbinding. . . (Barry Forshaw, Daily Express)

A pitch-perfect Golden Age mystery; not a pastiche but a gem of a period puzzle that belongs on the shelf beside the Wimsey originals. (Christopher Fowler, Financial Times)

An enjoyable and clever concoction . . . a good puzzle . . . skilled portrait of the austere postwar world. (Jessica Mann, Literary Review)

'Wit, worldly wisdom and literary jokes . . . As a Peter Wimsey story, it should give unalloyed pleasure to Sayers' fans: and simply in its own right as a novel, it makes joyous light reading.' (Anthony Lejeune, Tablet)

A crime puzzle with deeper layers which makes for an entertaining and satisfying read. (Historical Novels Review)

''A delight. The mystery is intriguing - and, more crucially, Paton Walsh perfectly captures Sayers's voice.' (Irish Times)

Book Description:

The long-awaited new Lord Peter Wimsey novel, telling the story of his first case - and his last . . .
