Whose Body?: Lord Peter Wimsey Book 1

Dorothy L Sayers

4 Reviews

Rated 0

Lord Peter Wimsey Myster, Fiction, Classic crime

The first book in the classic British detective series featuring amateur sleuth Lord Peter Wimsey, with a new introduction by crime writer and reviewer Laura Wilson.

It was the body of a tall stout man. On his dead face, a handsome pair of gold pince-nez mocked death with grotesque elegance.

The body wore nothing else.

Lord Peter Wimsey knew immediately what the corpse was supposed to be. His problem was to find out whose body had found its way into Mr Alfred Thipps' Battersea bathroom.
