Description

The best of the golden age crime writers, praised by all the top modern writers in the field including P. D. James and Ruth Rendell, Dorothy L. Sayers created the immortal Lord Peter Wimsey. His eighth appearance takes him to an artists' colony (based on a real one) in Scotland during the 1920s.

Lord Peter Wimsey could imagine the artist stepping back, the stagger, the fall down to where the pointed rocks grinned like teeth.

But was it an accident or murder? Six members of the close-knit Galloway artists' colony do not regret Campbell's death.

Five of them are red herrings.

Critiques

"She combined literary prose with powerful suspense, and it takes a rare talent to achieve that. A truly great storyteller." (Minette Walters)

Intolerable phoney Scots accents

Jane McDowell's faux Scottish accents are unbearable; despite my interest in the story itself, I could not listen to this. Very grateful for audible's returns policy.

Sehr detaillierte Recherche-Detektiv-Story

Wimsey ermittelt in einem Mordfall. Relativ wenig eigentliche Handlung. Es wird hauptsächlich die Recherche und die Alibis der Verdächtigen erzählt. Die Geschichte spielt in Schottland und der Sprecher gibt die Dialekte sehr gut wieder was die Erzählung lebendig macht.
