Description

Busman's Honeymoon has everything mystery, comedy, love, and drama all served up in Dorothy Sayers's best style.
New York Times

The great Dorothy L. Sayers is considered by many to be the premier detective novelist of the Golden Age, and her dashing sleuth, Lord Peter Wimsey, one of mystery fiction's most enduring and endearing protagonists. Acclaimed author Ruth Rendell has expressed her admiration for Sayers's work, praising her great fertility of invention, ingenuity, and wonderful eye for detail. The fourth Dorothy L. Sayers classic to feature mystery writer Harriet Vane, Busman's Honeymoon is now back in print with an introduction by Elizabeth George, herself a crime fiction master. Harriet and her love, Lord Peter, have finally tied the knot but begin their married life together on an expectedly sour note when a body is discovered in the cellar of their romantic country estate.
