Dorothy L. Sayers (1923-1957) was an English-born author of novels, short stories, poetry, essays, reviews, and translations. She is best known for her detective fiction, considered among the classics of the genre, and for her amateur detective character, Lord Peter Wimsey.
Ian Carmichael (1920-2010) appeared in a vast number of television productions, including The Importance of Being Earnest and the outstandingly successful The World of Wooster series for BBC TV. He portrayed Lord Peter Wimsey in several series for television and starred in two seasons of Strathblair. His film appearances included Lucky Jim, The Lady Vanishes, and Heaven's Above.From AudioFile:
In UNNATURAL DEATH, one of the early books in the Lord Peter Whimsey mystery series, Lord Peter investigates what he fears may be the perfect murder. The narrator, Ian Carmichael, gives a superb performance in general, but it takes a few minutes in the beginning to adjust to his accent and fast pace. It's also a puzzle that Carmichael does not differentiate between two main characters, Lord Peter Whimsey and his friend, Inspector Parker from Scotland Yard, when he is quite capable of doing so as he demonstrates with "lower-class" and minor characters of the story, whom he renders in a lively and satisfying manner.
