Two years after the trial for the murder of her lover, the blaze of publicity surrounding mystery writer Harriet Vane has begun to die away and Harriet decides it's time for a break. But the peace of a North Devon walking tour is rudely shattered when she discovers the body of a man on the beach, his throat slit from ear to ear.
The moment the story breaks Harriet’s old friend Lord Peter Wimsey is on the scene to lend his powers of detection. Can the two of them discover who the murderer is?

Have his Carcase
Classic BBC Radio drama. Harriet finds a body then the sea loses it, and you can't have an inquest without a body! I remember listening to this on one of its repeats one winter night with my Mother and cups of hot chocolate! It's the second in the Harriet Vain sequence, following 'Strong Poison' and before 'Gaudy Night'- which Audible has yet to get- hop on to 'Busmans Honeymoon'.

I've loved Lord Peter Wimsey stories all my life and
this is the story of how he persuades his wife to
marry him - while they investigate a murder of course.
