Inhaltsangabe

They plan to have a quiet country honeymoon. Then Lord Peter Wimsey and his bride, Harriet Vane, find the previous owner's body in the cellar.

Set in a country village seething with secrets and snobbery, this is Dorothy L. Sayers' last full-length detective novel.

Variously described as a love story with detective interruptions and a detective story with romantic interruptions, it lives up to both descriptions with style.

Sadly not worthy of the book

Dorothy L Sayers appreciates herself in the introduction to this book that it is not a typical crime novel. As with her other books it is a very intelligent connection between crime, recovery from trauma, description of emotional complications and a lot of humor. This time, there is also a lot (more) of romance and discussion of that.

Sadly, the performance lacks all of that. I had a very hard time listening to the story because the voice is sometimes monotone, sometimes just shrieking. Even the banter between people sounds boring and the jokes are made to sound tiring.

Personally, I will rather be reading the book again instead of listening again.
