Lord Peter Wimsey’s fishing holiday is interrupted in Dorothy L Sayers’ classic crime novel, introduced by writer and reviewer Barry Forshaw – a must-read for fans of Agatha Christie’s Poirot and Margery Allingham’s Campion Mysteries.

‘One of the best detective story writers’ Daily Telegraph

Lord Peter Wimsey could imagine the artist stepping back, the stagger, the fall, down to where the pointed rocks grinned like teeth.

But was it an accident – or murder? Six members of the close-knit Galloway artists’ colony do not regret Campbell’s death.

Five of them are red herrings.

She brought to the detective novel originality, intelligence, energy and wit.
P. D. James
I admire her novels . . . she has great fertility of invention, ingenuity and a wonderful eye for detail.
Ruth Rendell
She combined literary prose with powerful suspense, and it takes a rare talent to achieve that. A truly great storyteller.
Minette Walters
Sayers is one of the best detective story writers.
