Gaudy Night - Lord Peter Wimsey Mysteries (Paperback)Dorothy L. Sayers (author)
Harriet Vane has never dared to return to her old Oxford college. Now, despite her scandalous life, she has been summoned back . . .
At first she thinks her worst fears have been fulfilled, as she encounters obscene graffiti, poison pen letters and a disgusting effigy when she arrives at sedate Shrewsbury College for the 'Gaudy' celebrations. But soon, Harriet realises that she is not the only target of this murderous malice - and asks Lord Peter Wimsey to help.
The twelfth book in Dorothy L Sayers' classic Lord Peter Wimsey series, introduced by actress Dame Harriet Mary Walter, DBE - a must-read for fans of Agatha Christie's Poirot and Margery Allingham's Campion Mysteries.
Dorothy L Sayers was born in Oxford in 1893, and was both a classical scholar and a graduate in modern languages. As well as her popular Lord Peter Wimsey series, she wrote several religious plays, but considered her translations of Dante's Divina Commedia to be her best work. She died in 1957.

“The Vanest of Wimsey!”
A novel of the 1930s, 'Gaudy Night' is, quite simply, a classic of its detective genre - and so much more! Lord Peter hovers over all the early chapters but doesn't appear in person until about half-way... More
“Fantastic, exerts the brain cells!”
Have just returned to reading Sayers after absence of too many years. Her use of the language is masterly. Definitely on a par with Conan Doyle.
