"Dorothy L. Sayers is perhaps best known for two unique characters--Lord Peter Wimsey and Harriet Vane, whose complex courtship eventually ended in marriage. Their life together began with a corpse in the honeymoon cottage, but (except in two tantalizingly brief stories) readers were never able to see this extraordinary couple after the honeymoon--until now. In 1939, before Sayers gave up mystery writing, she began a new Vane/Wimsey mystery, set during the short-lived reign of Edward VIII. Unfinished for almost sixty years, this fragment has been completed in Sayers’ voice and according to her outline by Jill Paton Walsh. The result is as satisfying a puzzle and portrait of a marriage as any Sayers fan could hope for."; Ex-Library; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
