Lord Peter Wimsey
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 at the university.
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 then the Warden disappears.
And, worryingly, the way each of the deceased fellows has died bears an uncanny resemblance to the murder methods Peter has encountered in his past cases - methods that Harriet has also used in her published novels.
