Dorothy L. Sayers' "Gaudy Night"

April 24, 2008 by sdc

In April, we returned to a "classic" mystery author, in Dorothy Sayers. Our selected title is part of her Lord Peter Wimsey and Harriet Vale series -- Gaudy Night. In this Lord Peter Wimsey whodunit, mystery writer Harriet Vane attends her Oxford reunion, known as the "Gaudy". But the festivities are haunted by a series of ghastly warnings which threaten murder. Soon Harriet and her paramour, Lord Peter Wimsey, find themselves ensnared in a nightmare of terror. Originally published in 1936.

This title was discussed at the Just Desserts meeting on April 24, 2008. We encourage you to share your own thoughts and opinions about this book in a reply comment to this blog post, below!
