Ian Carmichael stars as Lord Peter Wimsey with Sarah Badel as Harriet Vane and co-starring Peter Jones, Rosemary Leach and Peter Vaughan in a BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation. Society's eligible women are in mourning. Lord Peter Wimsey has married at last, having finally succeeded in his ardent pursuit of the lovely mystery novelist Harriet Vane. The two depart for a tranquil honeymoon in a country farmhouse, but find, instead of a well-prepared love nest, the place left in a shambles by the previous owner. His sudden appearance, dead from a broken skull in the cellar, only prompts more questions. Why would anyone have wanted to kill old Mr Noakes? What dark secrets had he to hide? The honeymoon is over, as Lord Peter and Harriet Vane start their investigations. Suspicion is rife and everyone seems to have something to hide, from the local constable to the housekeeper. Wimsey and his wife can think of plenty of theories, but it s not until they discover a vital fact that the identity of the murderer becomes clear.

About Dorothy L. Sayers

Dorothy L. Sayers was born in Oxford in 1893. She published her first detective novel, "Whose Body?," in 1923, introducing Lord Peter Wimsey to the world. Ten more 'Wimsey' novels and four collections of short stories followed, as well as many other works of crime fiction, non-fiction and plays. Her translation of Dante's "Divine Comedy" is highly acclaimed, as is her cycle of twelve plays on the life of Jesus, "The Man Born to be King," which was broadcast on the BBC Home Service in 1941-1942. She died in 1957, leaving behind notes and fragments of an unfinished 'Wimsey' story - "Thrones, Dominations" - which was subsequently completed by Jill Paton Walsh and published in 1998. Paton Walsh has since written three other Lord Peter Wimsey books.
