25. A Presumption of Death

By: Jill Paton Walsh & Dorothy L. Sayers
Rated 4 1/2 Stars

I rated this down a little simply because I think I am starting to get burned out a little with these books. But I have to say that Jill Paton Walsh does a very good job of capturing Dorothy Sayer's voice. I sure wish she would do more of them. After a little change of pace I would be happy to revisit Lord Peter and Harriet. Below is a blurb from Barnes and Nobel.

"While Lord Peter is abroad on a secret mission, Harriet Vane, now Lady Peter Wimsey, takes their children to safety in the country. But there's no escape from war: rumors of spies abound, glamorous RAF pilots and flirtatious land-girls scandalize the villagers, and the blackout makes rural lanes as sinister as London's alleys. And when a practice air-raid ends with a young woman's death, it's almost a shock to hear that the cause is not enemy action, but murder. Or is it? With Peter away, Harriet sets out to find out whodunit...and the chilling reason why."
