?Busman?s Honeymoon has everything?mystery, comedy, love, and drama?all served up in Dorothy Sayers?s best style.?
?New York Times
The great Dorothy L. Sayers is considered by many to be the premier detective novelist of the Golden Age, and her dashing sleuth, Lord Peter Wimsey, one of mystery fiction?s most enduring and endearing protagonists. Acclaimed author Ruth Rendell has expressed her admiration for Sayers?s work, praising her ?great fertility of invention, ingenuity, and wonderful eye for detail.? The fourth Dorothy L. Sayers classic to feature mystery writer Harriet Vane, Busman?s Honeymoon is now back in print with an introduction by Elizabeth George, herself a crime fiction master. Harriet and her love, Lord Peter, have finally tied the knot but begin their married life together on an expectedly sour note when a body is discovered in the cellar of their romantic country estate.
Sinossi: 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. 'I admire her novels ...she has great fertility of invention, ingenuity and a wonderful eye for detail' P. D. James
