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.' Recommended.; Light spine creases, covers creased and lightly edgeworn, pages and inside covers age browned; pages clean, none loose. ; "Busman's Honeymoon has everything—mystery, comedy, love, and drama—all served up in Dorothy Sayers's best style."—NYTimes This author highly recommended by many Anglophile Books readers including Jerri C. of the ATS and the AT and DES email discussion groups.
