What to expect

Harriet Vane has never dared to return to her old Oxford college.
Now, despite her scandalous life, she has been summoned back . . .

At first she thinks her worst fears have been fulfilled, as she encounters
obscene graffiti, poison pen letters and a disgusting effigy when she
arrives at sedate Shrewsbury College for the ‘Gaudy’ celebrations.

But soon, Harriet realises that she is not the only target of this murderous
malice – and asks Lord Peter Wimsey to help.

‘I admire her novels … she has great fertility of invention, ingenuity and a
wonderful eye for detail’ P. D. James
