When Harriet Vane attends her Oxford reunion, known as the Gaudy, the prim academic setting is haunted by a rash of bizarre pranks: scrawled obscenities, burnt effigies, and poison-pen letters - including one that says, Ask your boyfriend with the title if he likes arsenic in his soup.

Some of the notes threaten murder and one of them involves a long Latin quotation, which makes Harriet suspect that the perpetrator is probably a member of the Senior Common Room. But which of the apparently rational, respectable dons could be committing such crazed acts? When a desperate undergraduate, at her wits' end after receiving a series of particularly savage letters, attempts to drown herself, Harriet decides that it is time to ask Lord Peter Wimsey for help. And when the mystery is finally solved, she is faced with an agonising decision: Should she, after five years of rejecting his proposals, finally agree to marry Lord Peter?

    " This is one of my all-time favorite books. The mystery itself takes second place to the development of Harriet Vane's character, and the changing relationship between her and Lord Peter. How the mystery ties in with Harriet's self-realization is one of the subtlest denouements ever, and something that keeps the reader thinking about it long after the story has ended. A brilliant story from a brilliant writer. "

    " Not only a well-written mystery with 2 of my favorite characters (Lord Peter Wimsey and Harriet Vane) but even more a well-written novel. I like to return to this book again and again just to be with these people and pretend I went to that school (at that time). "

    " No death but it's actually a pretty thrilling read. Harriet Vane is a really cool female lead and she's very much (along with many of the other women in the book) ahead of her time. A really solid mystery that I didn't work out until very much near the end. "
