A wonderful sketch of 1930s English society,
This review is from: Murder Must Advertise (A Lord Peter Wimsey Mystery) (Paperback)
One of my favourite Dorothy L Sayers novels (only to be topped by Five Red Herrings and The Nine Tailors), Murder Must Advertise is a clever mystery that takes you inside several layers of London society in the 1930s. It differs from Sayers' other novels in so far as our dectective, Lord Peter Wimsey, becomes part of the advertising agency he is investigating, instead of standing aloof from the situations, as he often does in his other novels. In fact, sole of the aspects I enjoy most about the novel are those related to Wimsey "playing" at being a copy writer. A fun read and a great twist at the end.

Just a note to say how weird it is when people list their favourite DLSs. The Nine Tailors and MMA are two of mine - Five Red Herrings is about bottom of my list. Funny, huh. Totally agree with you about liking seeing Peter get involved in the case much more than normal.
