Soon Kestrel is caught between the shadowy Carbonari - secret rebels against the Austrians - and the equally ruthless Austrian-sponsored police. But at the heart of the mystery is the captivating tenor known only as "Orfeo." Was he a political agent? A callous adventurer? A jealous lover? These questions take on a new urgency when the killer strikes again. And as Kestrel uncovers the truth, he risks becoming the next victim. '

When the Bow Street Runners fail to solve the crime, Alexander's distraught father turns to Julian Kestrel, elegant dandy and intrepid amateur sleuth. Soon Kestrel is up to his ears in suspects-and enigmas. Who was Alexander, really? Social reformer or butterfly, devoted husband or rake? Kestrel must peel off one mask after another, until at last he discovers an Alexander no one knew -- except, perhaps, the killer."

Light spine creases, covers creased and lightly edgeworn, pages and inside covers age browned; pages clean, none loose. ; This is 'the last of the Wimsey mysteries completed by Dorothy Sayers. And while murder is hardly the best way for the newlyweds to begin their honeymoon, it is certainly the most appropriate. Their married life begins when the former owner of their newly acquired estate is found quite dead in the cellar. What Lord Peter hopes to be a private and romantic stay in the country becomes a baffling case, what with a misspelled "notise" to the milkman and a dead man who has not a spot of blood on his smashed skull and not a pence less than six hundred pounds in his pocket. In short, as Lord Peter says, "Back to the old grind. Rigor mortis and who-saw-him-last, blood-prints, information received and it-is-my-dooty-to-warn-you." Together, the newlyweds pursue the truth to its less than happy ending even as they look ahead to their lives together.'
