4.0 out of 5 stars The Unpleasantness at the Bellona Club, 6 Sept. 2002
Not one of Peter Wimsey's best efforts but an interesting enough puzzle, well though out and satisfying to all fans of Dorothy L Sayers. However what makes this book fascinating for me is the deeply convincing contemporary portrait of upper and middle class post World War 1 Britain.
The Edwardian afternoon still lingers on for those too old to have fought and the Gentlemans club which forms the backdrop for much of this book remains a refuge from a rapidly changing world.
But for the "lucky" ones who return from the trenches their experiences haunt them. There are also the new economic realities of unemployment to be faced.
Dorothy L Sayer has brilliantly and effortlessly evoked the flavour of the period. As reader of detective fiction and a passionate history buff I enjoyed it enormously.
