The elegant, intelligent amateur sleuth Lord Peter Wimsey is one of detective literature s most popular creations. Ian Carmichael is the personification of Dorothy L. Sayers charming investigator in this BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatization.

When mystery writer Harriet Vane is accused of the murder of her lover, the evidence seems quite damning. But Lord Peter Wimsey is not convinced. And when, five hours later, no verdict has been returned, it seems that the jury may not be convinced either. But if Harriet didn t murder Philip Boyes, who did?"

About the Author

Dorothy Leigh Sayers (1893-1957) compte parmi les reines incontestees de l'age d'or du roman policier anglais. Apres de brillantes etudes a Oxford, elle sejourne en France comme professeur d'anglais. De retour a Londres, elle travaille dans une agence de publicite, puis s'interesse aux mouvements socialistes qui faconnent la societe anglaise de l'Entre-deux-guerres avant de publier en 1923 son premier roman, Lord Peter et l'inconnu, mettant en scene l'aristocratique detective Lord Peter Wimsey. Elle apporte un ton humoristique au traditionnel roman d'enigme, quelques traits aceres contre la societe bien-pensante de l'epoque, et affuble son heros d'une vie sentimentale. A partir de 1940, elle se consacre a sa passion, la litterature medievale.

Ian Carmichael (1920 2010) appeared in a vast number of television productions, including "The Importance of Being Earnest" and the outstandingly successful "The World of Wooster" series for BBC TV. He portrayed Lord Peter Wimsey in several series for television and starred in two seasons of "Strathblair". His film appearances included "Lucky Jim", "The Lady Vanishes", and "Heaven s Above".
