Gaudy Night by Dorothy L. Sayers
Book DescriptionA must-read for fans of Agatha Christie's Poirot and Margery Allingham's Campion Mysteries, Lord Peter Wimsey is the immortal amateur sleuth created by Dorothy L Sayers. Harriet Vane has never dared to return to her old Oxford college. Now, despite her scandalous life, she has been summoned back ...At first she thinks her worst fears have been fulfilled, as she encounters obscene graffiti, poison pen letters and a disgusting effigy when she arrives at sedate Shrewsbury College for the 'Gaudy' celebrations.

US Kirkus Review » We hereby promote Dorothy Sayers from the straight mystery classification, and put her into the category of novel-cum-detection-cum-psychology. First rate yarn on the erudite and discursive side, a good picture of academic life in England, and again a Peter Wimsy story, with a bit of romance accruing when he frees Harriet Vane of a murder charge, helps reinstate her in her college in Oxford, and helps her trace the culprit who is intimidating the college with obscene notes. Chance for a double sale - on fiction and on mystery tables. (Kirkus Reviews)
