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. The dignified calm of the Bellona Club is shattered when Lord 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. Download and start listening now!

    " In this one, Lord Peter stumbles on to a dead body who has all the signs of a natural death with one tiny, little quibble of the rigor mortis sort. When Murbles comes to Wimsey to pinpoint the time of death of the deceased it opens up a can of worms. Interesting and intricate little mystery. It has all the charm and fun of the others Lord Peter novels with the added touch of a "vernis" of personal conflict and tortured conscience. Add the character of George which might be a distorted vision of what might have happen to Lord Peter without his family after the War, you have a fascinating mystery with a social conscience. I liked it a lot. "

    " An ancient general is found dead, seated by the fire at the Bellona Club. Of course Lord Peter Wimsey just happened to be there. Of course there was something fishy about the body. Another great lark of a story with plenty of suspects and maybe not even a crime. I can't imagine not enjoying any of the Lord Peter Wimsey books and will keep reading them whenever I want light escapism. "

    " I LOVE Dorothy Sayers. Sir Peter is my favorite fictional detective, and that's coming from a longtime worshiper of Holmes. "

    " A perfect detective novel, if only for lines such as "Woodward brought across the malacca walking stick, carrying it, after the manner of a well-trained servant, by the middle" or "Mr Murbles waved an expressive hand at Wimsey, who was just taking from Bunter's hands a chaste silver tray, containing a Queen Anne coffee-pot and a milk jug, a plate of buttered toast, a delicate china coffee-cup and a small pile of correspondence".
