Abstract:

Clouds of witness: Rustic old Riddlesdale Lodge was a Wimsey family retreat filled with country pleasures and the thrill of the hunt --- until the game turned up human and quite dead. He lay among the chrysanthemums, wore slippers and a dinner jacket and was Lord Peter's brother-in-law-to-be. His accused murderer was Wimsey's own elder brother, and if murder set all in the family wasn't enough to boggle the unflappable Lord Wimsey, perhaps a few twists of fate would be --- a mysterious vanishing midnight letter from Egypt ... a grieving fiancee (Lord Peter's sister!) with suitcase in hand ... and a bullet destined for one very special Wimsey ... /The unpleasantness at the Bellona Club: Ninety-year-old General Fendman was definitely dead, but no one knew exactly when he had died --- and the time of death was the determining factor in a half-million-pound inheritance. Lord Peter Wimsey would need every bit of his amazing skills to unravel the mysteries of why the General's lapel was without a red poppy on Armistice Day, how the club's telephone was fixed without a repairman, and, most puzzling of all, why the great man's knee swung freely when the rest of him was stiff with rigor mortis ...
