The Documents in the Case

Dorothy L Sayers

3 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Crime & mystery, Classic crime

An epistolary crime novel from the creator of the immortal Lord Peter Wimsey, Dorothy L Sayers: in this thrilling murder story she tells her story instead through the letters of the victim and the suspects. With an introduction by author and journalist Libby Purves.

The bed was broken and tilted grotesquely sideways. Harrison was sprawled over in a huddle of soiled blankets. His mouth was twisted . . .

Harrison had been an expert on deadly mushrooms. How was it then that he had eaten a large quantity of death-dealing muscarine? Was it an accident? Suicide? Or murder?

The documents in the case seemed to be a simple collection of love notes and letters home. But they concealed a clue to the brilliant murderer who baffled the best minds in London.
