When Harriet Vane finds a dead body on the beach, she and Lord Peter Wimsey must solve a murder when all the evidence has washed out to sea Harriet Vane has gone on vacation to forget her recent murder trial and, more importantly, to forget the man who cleared her name—the dapper, handsome, and maddening Lord Peter Wimsey. She is alone on a beach when she spies a man lying on a rock, surf lapping at his ankles. She tries to wake him, but he doesn’t budge. His throat has been cut, and his blood has drained out onto the sand. As the tide inches forward, Harriet makes what observations she can and photographs the scene. Finally, she goes for the police, but by the time they return the body has gone. Only one person can help her discover how the poor man died at the beach: Lord Peter, the amateur sleuth who won her freedom and her heart in one fell swoop. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Dorothy L. Sayers including rare images from the Marion E. Wade Center at Wheaton College.… (más)

Review to come

Update 3/19:
Whoops, guess the review never came! Just to jot down some thoughts:
-The title's a bit off-putting. Gotta love a Homer/Cowper/Dickens quote, I guess?
-The tone was as charming as ever, a kind of brisk and sociable practicality that would speed me through any story Sayers chose to write
-Harriet Vane is just as nice a protagonist as Wimsey, and it was interesting to see him from her perspective
-The dynamic between the two actually did start to get on my nerves a bit. I love both of them as characters, and because of that I can buy into their relationship, but it does superficially play into the trope of "man annoys woman until she falls in love with him" that writers write so much for some reason
-Personally I liked the code section a lot. Deal with it!
-Good twist, even if the whole thing was pretty unlikely. That's what we're here for, though, I suppose ( )

Decided to revisit the whole series starting with no. one. Like seeing old friends again. ( )

While on a seaside holiday, detective writer Harriet Vane discovers a body on a secluded shore. With no help in site, Harriet does the best she can to document the scene and the condition of the body before the tide washes it away. This event naturally makes news headlines, and it doesn’t take long for Lord Peter Wimsey to appear. He is still in love with Harriet, and she still refuses every proposal (although some thawing is becoming evident). Who was the dead man? Did he commit suicide, or was he murdered? If he was murdered, how did the murderer come and go without leaving a trace, and without being seen by Harriet?

I love the developing relationship between Wimsey and Harriet, but there wasn’t enough of it to compensate for a pace that drags in places. Agatha Christie sets the standard for me. Christie focuses on character and dialogue, resulting in shorter and better paced novels. Sayers focuses more on the intricacies of the plot and on her characters’ thoughts and observations, resulting in longer and slower-paced novels. ( )

Harriet Vane stumbles upon a body along the seaside but suspects it may wash out to sea before police can arrive. The inspector needs her to remain until the body can be located. Vane photographed and collected evidence before she set out to get help, knowing things could be lost. Lord Peter shows up. He, Harriet, and the inspector investigate, but, of course, Harriet and Lord Peter come up with the solution. The full-cast dramatisation by BBC Radio was quite enjoyable. ( )

Once the solution is known, this book stands up less well than any to re-reading. I so often wanted to bash LPW&HV for not figuring it out chapters earlier, and really didn't enjoy the rotten lots and the rotten attitudes which filled the majority of those chapters. It's full of cleverness, of course, and making games, rhymes and puzzles of bits is so literary, but to me, quite unreal. ( )

The best remedy for a bruised heart is not, as so many people seem to think, repose upon a manly bosom.
[Author's Note] In 'The Five Herrings', the plot was invented to fit a locality; in this book, the locality has been invented to fit the plot.
[Introduction] I came to the wonderful detective novels of Dorothy L. Sayers in a way that would probably make that distinguished novelist spin in her grave.

I have seen unpleasant cases, difficult cases, complicated cases, and even contradictory cases, but a case founded on stark unreason I have never met before.
'You mean,' went on Wimsey, 'that they think in clichés.'

'Eh?'

‘Formulae. “There's nothing like a mother's instinct” “Dogs and children always know.” “Kind hearts are more than coronets." “Suffering refines the character”—that sort of guff, despite all evidence to the contrary.'
