Disponible auprès d'autres vendeursAfficher tous les exemplaires de ce livre
Language: English . Brand New. Lord Peter Wimsey and his detective novelist wife Harriet Vane return in Jill Paton Walsh s brilliant new continuation of Dorothy L. 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. The voting is evenly balanced. The warden would normally cast the deciding vote, but he has disappeared. And when several of the fellows unexpectedly die as well, Lord Peter and Harriet set off on an investigation to uncover what is really going on at St. Severin s.With this return to the Oxford of Gaudy Night, which many readers regard as their favorite of Sayers s original series, Jill Paton Walsh revives the wit and brilliant plotting of the golden age of detective fiction.

A propos du livre :
A new murder mystery featuring Lord Peter Wimsey - now a Duke - and his wife Harriet Vane, set in an Oxford college in the 1950s.
Peter Wimsey is pleased to discover that along with a Dukedom he has inherited the duties of 'visitor' at an Oxford college.When the fellows appeal to him to resolve a dispute, he and Harriet set off happily to spend some time in Oxford.
But the dispute turns out to be embittered. The voting is evenly balanced between two passionate parties - evenly balanced, that is, until several of the fellows unexpectedly die.The Warden has a casting vote, but the Warden has disappeared.
And the causes of death of the deceased fellows bear an uncanny resemblance to the murder methods in Peter's past cases - methods that Harriet has used in her published novels .
