A wonderful addition to the Wimsey canon. Walsh developed this story from letters published in papers during WWII. Sayers wrote exchanges purportedly from Harriet to Peter and vice versa so Walsh picked up from there.
This story has Peter on a secret spy mission and Harriet evacuated to their country home with her own children as well as the Parker family. One night during a practice air drill, one of the girls who have also been evacuated to the village is killed. Harriet begins working on the case but luckily Peter comes in to help wrap it up.
