Publisher's Summary

The best of the golden age crime writers, praised by all the top modern writers in the field including P. D. James and Ruth Rendell, Dorothy L. Sayers created the immortal Lord Peter Wimsey. The 11th book featuring Lord Peter, set in a country church, is often named as the best detective story ever written.

When his sexton finds a corpse in the wrong grave, the rector of Fenchurch St Paul asks Lord Peter Wimsey to find out who the dead man was and how he came to be there.

The lore of bell ringing and a brilliantly evoked village in the remote fens of East Anglia are the unforgettable background to a story of an old unsolved crime and its violent unravelling 20 years later.

    "Good story, but as usual, McDowell disappoints"

    I keep hoping the next book she narrates will be better. Maybe she will have read the reviews and changed her style? But no, still the same awkward cadences, odd pauses and bizarre emphasis. However, this does not detract too much from this wonderfully atmospheric mystery of Sayers'. Several plot twists and blind alleys make you totally confused before the final revelation. Very enjoyable.

    Story
    "idiotic choics of performer"

    completely idiotic to give books supposed to be spoken by Lord Peter Wimsey to a woman to perform -- and an absolotely appalling reader at that.
    Utterly grotesque! Utter waste of money.

    Story
    "Didn't need to be so long"

    This book didn't need to be as long as it is. In fact an awful lot of needless, boring, unintelligible information about bell ringing could have been cut. That would have made the story move along without the really annoying quotes etc at the beginning of every chapter. Perhaps all the names of the bells, the bell ringers, their tone, order, sound etc would be interesting to bell ringers, but to us mere mortals it is like listening to parts of the book in a foreign language.
    Not the "best story ever" that I was expecting or that was advertised.

    "Exciting To The Last"

    Dorothy L Sayers is at her best with this book: her twists and turns weave threads of English life -some parts of it of a world long gone, some unchanged to this day -to create a delightful, rich tapestry that engrosses to the very last.

    Story
    "Dull Dorothy disaster"

    Sorry Dorothy, you simply don't compare to Agatha. The plot doesn't get going and you have to endure reams of information about bells before anything happens. I also would have preferred a male narrator seeing as Lord Peter is indeed a male.

    Not the best Wimsey of them all, but an interesting enjoyable listen. A unique whodunnit.
