When a disfigured corpse is discovered in a country parish, the local rector pleads with Lord Peter to take on what will become one of his most brilliant and complicated cases.
One of her best, August 27, 2003 Reviewer: queenmedb from Knoxville, TN, USA This is certainly one of Sayers' best novels. The plot is detailed and realistic and the characters equally so. Lord Peter is at his most charming and observant. The book centers around a church and it's bell ringers. The chapters begin with quotes about bell ringing, which give it a wonderful flavor. If you only read one Lord Peter novel, make it this one! --This text refers to the Paperback edition
