Gaudy Night Summary


Gaudy Night: Lord Peter Wimsey Book 12 by Dorothy L. Sayers

A 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.
But soon, Harriet realises that she is not the only target of this murderous malice - and asks Lord Peter Wimsey to help.
