Lord Peter Wimsey, polymath and detective, once again uses his wits and vast knowledge to solve crimes, unmask the guilty and aid their victims.
Long Description
One solution requires expertise in fine wines; another calls on his knowledge of fine art. Lord Peter has the knack of being on the spot at just the right time to spot a thief or blackmail a blackmailer. Or even prevent a murder . . . Whatever the occasion, the aristocratic detective uses his razor-sharp mind and unerring instincts to unmask the guilty and go to the aid of their victims.
