4.0 out of 5 stars Dodgy doings at staid old Pymms, 25 Feb 2010
This review is from: Murder Must Advertise (A Lord Peter Wimsey Mystery) (Paperback)
A suspicious death at Pymm's Advertising Agency is just the start of it all. Something untoward is afoot, and the unseemly curiosity of the latest recruit to the copywriting team is stirring up more trouble than anyone suspected could exist in such a steady old firm.

I found that the joy of this novel was the vivid and totally convincing description of a 1930's advertising agency. The sights and sounds, the office etiquette, the different practicalities of working life 75 years ago are fascinating. And how little the unscrupulous advertising world has changed!

Yes, the murder itself is rather preposterous, but Peter Wimsey is his usual self - a rather buttoned-up, old school Englishman, but a charmer nonetheless. This story isn't the perfect murder mystery, but it is great fun.
