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 first appearance is in a classic murder mystery - who is the dead man in the Battersea bath? With an introduction by Elizabeth George.It was the body of a tall stout man. On his dead face, a handsome pair of gold pince-nez mocked death with grotesque elegance. The body wore nothing else. Lord Peter Wimsey knew immediately what the corpse was supposed to be. His problem was to find out whose body had found its way into Mr Alfred Thipps' Battersea bathroom.'I admire her novels . . . she has great fertility of invention, ingenuity and a wonderful eye for detail.' Ruth Rendell

3.0 Whose Body? - Notes on a Re-read

Whose Body? was still a far cry from the quality of the rest of the series, but knowing the characters better from the other books gives this story so much more life and depth.

Although my overall favorites still remain the Ian Carmichael audios (not the BBC full cast dramat...

3.5 Whose Body?
This book is not what I was expecting and it doesn´t read like any other golden age crime novel I have read before. Whose Body? is an odd CSI / Criminal Minds mix. Bunter taking fingerprints, the psychology behind the murder, the way Lord Peter Wimsey helps a witness to remember what happened on a...

3.0 Whose Body? by Dorothy Sayers (audiobook)
Series: Lord Peter Wimsey #1 I wasn't planning on rereading this before picking up the second book, Clouds of Witness, but my memory of Peter Wimsey and the plot were a bit foggy and my library had this audio version, so I figured why not? It's still a fun story, although there are portions of i...

3.0 Whose Body? / Dorothy L. Sayers
The stark naked body was lying in the tub. Not unusual for a proper bath, but highly irregular for murder -- especially with a pair of gold pince-nez deliberately perched before the sightless eyes. What's more, the face appeared to have been shaved after death. The police assumed that the victim was...
