“A nearly perfect detective story.” (Saturday Review)
“Written with distinction and wit, and is as much as psychological story as an experiment in detection. It has all the excitement which a detective story should offer.” (The Spectator)
“I admire her novels. . . . She has a great fertility of invention, ingenuity and a wonderful eye for detail.” (Ruth Rendell)
From the Back Cover
Mystery novelist Harriet Vane, recovering from an unhappy love affair and its most unpleasant aftermath, seeks solace on a barren beach deserted but for one notable exception: the body of a bearded young man with his throat cut. From the moment she photographs the corpse, which soon disappears with the tide, she is puzzled by a mystery that might easily have been a suicide, a murder, or a political plot. With the appearance of her dear friend Lord Peter Wimsey, however, Harriet finds yet another reason to pursue the mystery, as only the two of them can pursue it.

The book itself is literate and serves well to advance the relationship between the two main characters. From first book to last, Sayers' style develops from superficial to highly reflective and deeply emotional.
