Description

"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.

In this installment of the "literate and delightful" Lord Peter Wimsey Mysteries, Harriet Vane's honeymoon with the dapper British detective is marred by murder (Chicago Tribune).
It took several near-death experiences for Lord Peter Wimsey to convince Harriet Vane to be his wife, but she has finally relented. When the dapper detective marries Britain's most popular mystery author—just a few short years after rescuing her from the hangman's noose—the press could not be more excited. But Lord Peter and his bride have no interest in spending their wedding night surrounded by reporters. They sneak out of their own reception to begin their honeymoon early, out of sight of the world. Unfortunately, for some couples, calamity is inescapable.

On their 1st morning together, the newlyweds discover the house's caretaker bludgeoned to death in the manor's basement. If they thought finding a few minutes alone was difficult, they're up against even steeper odds. In a house full of suspects, identifying the killer won't be easy.

Busman's Honeymoon is the 13th book in the Lord Peter Wimsey Mysteries, but you may enjoy the series by reading the books in any order.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Dorothy L. Sayers including rare images from the Marion E. Wade Center at Wheaton College.
