Recommended for: Arlene Havlark
Read from July 28 to 29, 2011

I have loved all of the Dorothy L. Sayers' Lord Peter Wimsey novels and this, written by Joyce Paton Walsh using a manuscript discovered after Sayers' death, is just as good as the others. If you love British mysteries and serial books, start at the beginning of the Lord Peter Wimsey series:

1. Whose Body? (1923)
2. Clouds of Witness (1926)
3. Unnatural Death (1927)
4. Lord Peter Views the Body (1928)
5. The Unpleasantness at the Bellona Club (1928)
6. Strong Poison (1930)
7. The Five Red Herrings (1931)
8. Have His Carcase (1932)
9. Hangman's Holiday (1933)
10. Murder Must Advertise (1933)
11. The Nine Tailors (1934)
12. Gaudy Night (1935)
13. Busman's Honeymoon (1937)
14. In the Teeth of the Evidence (1939)

Dorothy L. Sayers is recognized as one of the greatest mystery writers of the 20th century. Jill Paton Walsh writes beautifully in Sayers' style. Her Lord Peter Wimsey and Harriet Vane novels are:

1. Thrones, Dominations (1998) (with Dorothy L Sayers)
2. A Presumption of Death (2002) (with Dorothy L Sayers)
3. The Attenbury Emeralds (2010)
