Sayers s classic mysteries.When a dispute among the fellows of St. Severin s College, Oxford University, reaches a stalemate, Lord Peter Wimsey discovers that as the Duke of Denver he is the Visitor charged with the task of resolving the issue. It is time for Lord Peter and his detective novelist wife Harriet to revisit their beloved Oxford, where their long and literate courtship finally culminated in their engagement and marriage.At first the dispute seems a simple difference of opinion about a valuable manuscript that some of the fellows regard as nothing but an insurance liability, which should be sold to finance a speculative purchase of land.
