When Harriet Vane finds a dead body on the beach, she and Lord Peter Wimsey must solve a murder when all the evidence has washed out to sea Harriet Vane has gone on vacation to forget her recent murder trial and, more importantly, to forget the man who cleared her name & mdash;the dapper, handsome, and maddening Lord Peter Wimsey. She is alone on a beach when she spies a man lying on a rock, surf lapping at his ankles. She tries to wake him, but he doesn & rsquo;t budge. His throat has been cut, and his blood has drained out onto the sand. As the tide inches forward, Harriet makes what observations she can and photographs the scene. Finally, she goes for the police, but by the time they return the body has gone. Only one person can help her discover how the poor man died at the beach: Lord Peter, the amateur sleuth who won her freedom and her heart in one fell swoop. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Dorothy L. Sayers including rare images from the Marion E. Wade Center at Wheaton College.

Maybe you have to really love Peter Wimsey to plow through what at first seems a superficial story. But you know better, because Harriet Vane is at the center, or at least at the center of Wimsey's attention. I enjoyed the two steps forward, one step back progression of their relationship, and the mystery does get deeper. Some of the characters seem terribly dated and it's hard to be patient with that part. But human beings in all their goodness and badness are portrayed again by Sayers in this complex mystery.

The book was okay – but not one of my favorites.
