Jen | 1545 comments This was the first book in the Lord Peter Wimsey Series. Lord Peter WImsey gets involved in a mysterious case of an unidentified body that turns up in someone's bath tub. While I enjoyed the main character (who I have also liked in other books), it was not my favorite of his books. Some pieces were pretty bad in terms of anti-semitic descriptions (one of characters was a Jewish man).

The mystery itself was okay. I read the book for another challenge and it also fits the classic tag for the March Decathlon.

yes, I did like Nine Tailors and Murder Must Advertise much more. Good to know that you do need to read them in order
