Review

Sayers's fans won't be disappointed, and newcomers are in for a treat (Laura Wilson, Guardian)

Sayers would not have recognised that it wasn't her own work. (Marcel Berlins, The Times)

A great deal of fun. (Natasha Cooper TLS)

An absolute treat: civilised, intelligent and spellbinding. . . (Barry Forshaw, Daily Express)

A pitch-perfect Golden Age mystery; not a pastiche but a gem of a period puzzle that belongs on the shelf beside the Wimsey originals. (Christopher Fowler, Financial Times)

An enjoyable and clever concoction . . . a good puzzle . . . skilled portrait of the austere postwar world. (Jessica Mann, Literary Review)

An engrossing, intelligent and provocative novel in the guise of a conventional mystery. (Joyce Carol Oates, New York Times Book Review)

Could this be the best book Dorothy L. Sayers never wrote? She has done a splendid job - certain to please the legions of Sayers loyalists as well as readers new to the Wimsey canon . . . Lord Peter has been made much more human and interesting by marriage. . . and the story is full of twists and connivance. (Chicago Tribune on THRONES, DOMINATIONS)

'Paton Walsh's book conjurs up a sense of time and place wonderfully well and deals with more than just the central story, giving us a clear picture of life after the war, how the lives of the characters have been affected by it, and also showing subtly and powerfully the relationship between master and servant ... A crime puzzle with deeper layers which makes for an entertaining and satisfying read.' (Historial Novels Review) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Book Description

The long-awaited new Lord Peter Wimsey novel, telling the story of his first case - and his last . . .
