characters Thrones Dominations Lord Peter Wimsey and Harriet Vane #1 ✓ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB As they become part of fashionable London society they encounter the glamorous socialite Rosamund Harwell and her wealthy impressario husband Laurence Unlike the Wimseys they are not in love and all too soon one of them is dead A murder case that only Lord Peter Wimsey can solve. Once you get it in your head that you re reading fan fiction this isn t a horrible book Trouble is I read and write fan fiction and I ve read better stuff than this Sayers style isn t easy and while Paton Walsh had notes and even some actual text to go off the dialog often feels forced as does the attempt to add historical events to the narrative even though Sayers herself had done that in both Gaudy Night and Busman s HoneymoonIt all boils down to the fact that Paton Walsh simply isn t the writer that Sayers was She s all right when she s dealing with the murder which is actually fairly clever but when it comes to Peter and Harriet and Bunter all stumbling a little while they work out the early days of Peter and Harriet s marriage she falls down on the job

characters Thrones Dominations Lord Peter Wimsey and Harriet Vane #1 ✓ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Sh to complete itThe result is this accomplished and ingenious novel worthy of the mistress of the golden age of the crime novel at her very bestIt is 1936 and Lord Peter Wimsey has returned from his honeymoon to set up home with his cherished new wife the novelist Harriet Vane. This was enjoyable I read it within a 24 hour period off and on between cominggoing and a dozen other physical tasks And it still kept its integrity cognition feel for tone that is periodplace and personality uniue through all those interruptions No little task It s says so much that Walsh could keep it in the fold so to speak for such an up scale entity as these Lord Peter Wimsey books are Of course there was a style shift that did occur right about the time of the murder and with that long and first months of marriage beginning I can understand how Sayers let this one lay SO many uestions and reactions when two such intrepid personalities and dynamos of action have attached themselves to each other Especially at their ages and in this period The crime itself the plotting and the puzzle pieces of the forensics and the possible duplicity portents all fit I wouldn t put them above average but the coupleship of Peter and Harriet is carved in such depth here that it is not needed And I thought the escapade following the new King to France and those associations was pretty vivid to the feel too You know Peter s true prioritiesRegardless of a few shifts in style and having the word pace and speed Sayers wrote longer and in shades of allusion change it was a superlative effort And I enjoyed this than some 5 star reads for the wit 1936 ambiance and also the portions at the end that tell you the future outcomes When I see the lower star ratings here I just disagree They seemed to want less new marriage and plot And I completely disagree about the conversational proclivities of it being artificial or forced This is 1936 and particularly the most liberated or independent or modern English couple would have had difficulty sorting out in talk the absences family uestion etc It s truly unfair to judge standards of one time by the strictures and language barriers to intimate talk of another era The sensibilities and the concepts being beyond different It s also illogical People and their sensibilities and values to open conversations are closely meshed into their era and personal experience of norm This is 1936What a gift for Walsh to give to Sayers Well done
