When blood stains his family name, Lord Peter fights to save what he holds most dear After three months in Corsica, Lord Peter Wimsey has begun to forget that the gray, dangerous moors of England ever existed. But traveling through Paris, he receives a shock that jolts him back to reality. He sees it in the headlines splashed across every English paper—his brother Gerald has been arrested for murder. The trouble began at the family estate in Yorkshire, where Gerald was hunting with the man soon to be his brother-in-law, Captain Denis Cathcart. One night, Gerald confronts Cathcart with allegations about his unsavory past, leading the captain to call off the wedding. Just a few hours later, Cathcart is dead, with Gerald presumed to be the only one who could have fired the fatal shot. The clock is ticking, and only England’s premier sleuth can get to the bottom of this murky mystery. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Dorothy L. Sayers including rare images from the Marion E. Wade Center at Wheaton College.

Love these Dorothy L. Sayers whodunits about the detective Lord Peter Whimsey. I'm obviously reading them out of order, so this is one of the earlier ones, without Harriet Vane, but it's really good anyway. The odd thing is, in this book, she has Lord Peter Whimsey and some other nobs dropping all their g's - livin' singin' happenin' - very weird. Would this have been the way the upper class talked in the 1900s? In the later one I read - Busman's Honeymoon - he doesn't speak like this at all. An odd change.
