First book of the current readathon!

This is more or less the third time I've read this, so there were no surprises left. I can't actually remember the audio version very well, though -- in fact, this book in general left very little impression on me. I remembered the murderer, but I forgot all about Wimsey's tortured conscience, and about Ann Dorland, who turned out to be rather a good person. I only remembered the ending, with the (view spoiler) theme, just before I read it.

There is a lot here I like, though: Wimsey's quarrels with Parker, Sheila, Ann, the awkward moments with Marjorie... Peter is, as usual, frightfully clever, and as usual, I wish there was more of Bunter. I do like the way it all resolves: it's very neat.
