A Lord Peter Wimsey / Harriet Vane MysteryLord Peter Wimsey/Harriet Vane (Volume 1)
Dorothy L. Sayers and Jill Paton Walsh
In 1936, Dorothy L. Sayers —considered one of the best mystery writers of the Golden Age—abandoned the last Lord Peter Wimsey detective story. Sixty years later, a copy of the unfinished manuscript was discovered in her agent's safe in London, and award-winning novelist Jill Paton Walsh was commissioned to complete it. The result was the international bestseller Thrones, Dominations.
Now, this irresistible story is back in paperback. Picking up where Sayers left off, Jill Paton Walsh brings Lord Peter and Harriet Vane brilliantly to life in Sayers' unmistakable voice.
