I was reading the Wimsey mysteries in order, until I got to Five Red Herrings. Although I generally love books set in Scotland, there was something about that book that just ground my reading to a halt. After staring at it on my GR currently reading list for three weeks, I decided to just throw in t...

I read this one but didn’t end up writing a post about it. Partly this is because of the DLS books I just re-read, it’s the only one that’s really focused on the mystery, with Peter and Harriet’s relationship second. Also, it’s just vaguely grimy and depressing. Murder Must Advertise is sad; HHC is ...

The Peter Wimsey novels are one of the better known golden age mystery series, and the one which gets probably the most literary approval, as well as being known as one of THE great love stories in mysteries.And yet, while it falls well into re-read territory for me (because I like Peter) and I enjo...

I wonder if I should create a cosy or comfy shelf? For the e-books, anyway. I know where I keep my comfort hard copies. I find I skip the technical parts of detective stories like this (the railway timetable sections - though in this one it's several pages of deciphering secret letters) much as I us...
