About the Author
Dorothy L. Sayers was born in 1893. She was one of the first women to be awarded a degree by Oxford University, and later she became a copywriter at an ad agency. In 1923 she published her first novel featuring the aristocratic detective Lord Peter Wimsey, who became one of the world's most popular fictional heroes. She died in 1957.

Nevertheless, if you're a Sayers fan, you have to read this one too.
I felt SURE, as I waded through "document" after document, that there was going to be a wonderful twist at the end. There just HAD to be! After all, (1) we had no written documents from Lathom whatsoever, so (2) Munting could have altered what "really happened" in his letters to Elizabeth, as well as in his written "statements". (3) And since "Lolo's" letters were written to "Petra" that could easily have been Munting to whom she was writing. (4) And poor Aggie could have been sent to the mental asylum because she was telling the TRUTH -- but no one would believe her. At the end of this so-called mystery, we would find out whodunit -- and been amazed at how clever and diabolical Munting had been.
Instead, everything points to Lathom throughout the book, and GUESS WHAT? Lathom did it! Surprise, surprise, surprise.
What a big waste of time. This one goes into the trash, too, along with "Red Herrings", and "Floating Admiral".
P.S. I don't think the absence of Whimsey is what made this such a terrible book. After all, he was in "Red Herrings" and that was awful, too.
