9780062311917: The Unpleasantness at the Bellona Club: A Lord Peter Wimsey Mystery

On November 11, ninety-year-old General Fentiman is found dead in an armchair at the Bellona Club. No one knows exactly when his death occurred—information essential in determining the recipient of a substantial inheritance. But that is only one of the mysteries vexing Lord Peter Wimsey. The aristocratic sleuth needs every bit of his amazing skills to discover why the proud officer's lapel was missing the requisite red poppy on Armistice Day, how the Bellona Club's telephone was fixed without a repairman, and, most puzzling of all, why the great man's knee swung freely when the rest of him was stiff with rigor mortis.

About the Author:

Dorothy L. Sayers was born in 1893. She was one of the first women to be awarded a degree by Oxford University, and later she became a copywriter at an ad agency. In 1923 she published her first novel featuring the aristocratic detective Lord Peter Wimsey, who became one of the world's most popular fictional heroes. She died in 1957.

From AudioFile:

No one has mastered the snappy comeback like Lord Peter Wimsey. It's worth reading a Dorothy Sayers mystery just to hear what the silver-tongued sleuth will come out with next. In this adventure, 90-year-old General Fentiman is found dead in a wing chair at his London club. But how long has he been stiff under that newspaper? The timing means half a million pounds to someone. Ian Carmichael is Peter Wimsey. With perfect timing and vocal inflection, he ekes every bit of humor out of Wimsey that is possible to get while still maintaining the detective's effete, ever so aristocratic intelligence. While doing a dandy job with all the rest of the characters, it's really Peter and the faithful Bunter who shine here. D.G. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
