Summary:

Enter the 1920s Golden Age of Detection with this first novel from Dorothy L. Sayers, featuring the debut of a dashing gentleman detective, one of the great characters of mystery fiction—Lord Peter Wimsey. An unidentified corpse is found in a bathtub, and the police are jumping to conclusions about its identity and that of the murderer. Lord Peter Wimsey steps in and, with the help of his friend Inspector Parker and his manservant Bunter, solves the mystery.

“Dorothy Sayers is in a class by herself.”--Chicago Daily Tribune

    This book is the first in the Lord Peter Wimsey series, I believe, and it shows. The story itself was interesting but somewhat obvious--nonetheless, I enjoyed it. However, had I not been eager to reacquaint myself with the story, I wouldn't have suffered through the horrid narrator. He spoke all the women's voices in a breathy, high-pitched, practically apologetic tone, most of the men just sounded grumpy, and Peter Wimsey's voice was exceedingly "twee"--over the top and affectedly quaint. I probably won't listen to it again, and am actually sorry I purchased it.
