Dorothy L. Sayers – Whose Body? (AmazonClassics Edition)


A prominent financier vanishes before bedtime, without his clothes. Hours later, a corpse is found in a bathtub wearing only pince-nez eyeglasses. When its determined that the body is not that of the financier, its up to amateur detective Lord Peter Wimsey to uncover the naked truth. As the part-time sleuth investigates what these men – one dead, one missing, both starkers – have in common, the pieces of two puzzles converge, and the case becomes more dangerous by the clue.

Dorothy L. Sayerss debut whodunit introduced the world to her British gentleman detective Lord Wimsey. The first in her series, Whose Body? still delights and surprises right down to its devious denouement.

Revised edition: Previously published as Whose Body?, this edition of Whose Body? (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.

User Review:

postmortem desired

I had heard such good thing about Sayers suspense novels; however, I found this uninspiring to say the least. Quite difficult to follow, often needing to replay for clarification but lacking the desire to follow through. Very disappointed in tired tactics of revealing story lines through telegrams & letters. Audio voices sometimes hard to understand & differentiate. I bought all 3 Peter Wimsey tapes & regret that decision. Unless convinced by someone, I wont listen. Ah, another lesson learned.
