Thrones and Dominations
Lord Peter Wimsey series, book #12
by Jill Paton Walsh and Dorothy L. Sayers
* * * Stars (Pretty good)
Lord Peter Wimsey and Harriet have returned from their slightly chaotic honeymoon and are now moving into life together. Before they come back they meet a couple in Paris – Rosamund and her husband who backs plays. Wimsey’s slightly incorrigible sister organizes a dinner for them to meet the “society.” Peter and Harriet are figuring out life together with Harriet slightly befriending Rosamund. But soon after, Rosamund is discovered dead. Now Peter and Harriet have to race to solve the mystery before the murderer gets away with the crime. Jill Paton Walsh’s style of writing is similar to Dorothy L. Sayers’ style but there are a few differences, which readers of Sayers’ work might not enjoy. There are also some graphic descriptions and some references to adult content. For adults.
