5.0 out of 5 stars A new Wimsey!!!!, 25 Oct. 2010
This review is from: The Attenbury Emeralds (Audio CD)
Dorothy L.Sayers was a master at her craft so I approached this audiobook with some trepidation.

I need not have worried!!
It is true to the idea of Lord Peter Wimsey. It is an enjoyable listen through recollections of a case that Lord Peter and Bunter had been involved at the start of their careers.

It has all of the usual characters Lord Peter, Bunter and Harriet Vane(now married to Lord Peter) as well as the Dowager Duchess.....

The story is of stolen emeralds and broken promises, wild youth after the Great War and the beginning of Lord Peter's new career as a gentleman detective.
It mentions his struggles after the trenches and fills in some gaps on the Wimsey and Bunter families in later years.

Sayers would have liked it, I think, she was always a little in love with her character of Lord Peter and here you glimpse his later, happier married life.

Edward Petherbridge is excellent as Lord Peter, although the late great Ian Carmichael, will always be my favourite Lord Peter.

So as an avid fan this is fantastic. An excellent listen up there with the wonderful BBC dramatisations.

Buy it, you'll love the listening about the 20's and its cocktail parties, bright young things and crime.....
