Have His Carcase by Dorothy Sayers, Harriet Vane stumbles upon a dead body on a deserted beach. Evidence shows that the man has been dead for only minutes, but there's nobody else in sight. Was it suicide -- or murder? And will Harriet find herself a suspect in yet another murder investigation?
Lord Peter Wimsey novel seems to have something particular to recommend
it, and in this one, it's the glimpses we get into Harriet's character
and thought processes, and Harriet and Lord Peter's developing
relationship. I'm really looking forward to Gaudy Night (I'm skipping Murder Must Advertise because I read it last year), but I have a few non-Sayers books to read in the interim.
