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. His second appearance is a thrilling quest to save his own brother - the Duke of Denver - from the hangman.
The Duke of Denver, accused of murder, stands trial for his life in the House of Lords. Naturally, his brother Lord Peter Wimsey is investigating the crime - this is a family affair. The murder took place at the duke's shooting lodge and Lord Peter's sister was engaged to marry the dead man.
But why does the duke refuse to co-operate with the investigation? Can he really be guilty, or is he covering up for someone?

The world between the wars

Lord Peter will always be superb (and incredibly sexy!). ...And the introduction of Harriet Vane is perfectly placed in Wimsey's investigative career. What I don't understand is the general braying about Jane McDowell's narration. I have many audible books and her voice is up with the best. For a woman to narrate male characters is just as plausible as the reverse. Bravo all around.
