Have His Carcase by Dorothy L. Sayers
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Library. (and very overdue)
I enjoyed reading this; fall sports extended my reading of it - children's soccer every evening and football on the weekends really cramp my reading style ;) It would have not normally taken such a long time to go through it.
Harriet Vane out on a walking vacation - oh, so conveniently - found a dead body. She's recently been acquitted of committing murder, writes murder mysteries, and is putting off Lord Peter's advances. Of course, the circumstances pull Lord Peter immediately to her - his two loves being murder and Ms. Vane.
The best scenes in the book are the ones where they are both present. Their rapport makes the book.
The unfolding of the facts of the case is systematic and, at times, laborious.
Looking forward to book #9 ...
