Introducing Harriet

by Elizabeth Y on Mar 5, 2011

This is the first time we meet Harriet, Lord Peter's amore, whom he woos throughout the next three books. Interestingly, Sayers shifts her focus to Harriet's point of view and we finally get a closer look into Lord Peter's hopes and dreams which we have not seen in previous books.

by COVER2COVER on Jan 1, 2010

This is a pretty formulaic mystery which for the most part was a little flat for me. There were passages that seemed to ramble on completely unrelated to the story. The main characters just did not click with me. The one thing that elevated it from a two star rating to a three was the ladies of the "cattery". I loved the ingenious Miss Climpson much more than either Lord Wimsey or Harriet Vane. Other than that, this just was not my "cuppa tay"!
