Strong Poison by Dorothy L. Sayers
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Well, I must say that this was my favorite Lord Peter book as yet. To see the generally self controlled Lord Peter lose his cool over a woman was a pretty interesting development. To see the fall-out from that in his dealings with his acquaintance, his family, Miss Climpson, Inspector Parker, and finally solving the mystery was intriguing.
Depsite some reviewers who did not care for Miss Climpson's episodes, I like her. She's got pluck and her work was indispensable. A character like Lord Peter requires a community working for the same goals, and I think Strong Poison emphasizes the idea that no man is an island .... particularly a man in love.
