    "Have his Carcase"

    Classic BBC Radio drama. Harriet finds a body then the sea loses it, and you can't have an inquest without a body! I remember listening to this on one of its repeats one winter night with my Mother and cups of hot chocolate! It's the second in the Harriet Vain sequence, following 'Strong Poison' and before 'Gaudy Night'- which Audible has yet to get- hop on to 'Busmans Honeymoon'.

    "Nice book"

    I've loved Lord Peter Wimsey stories all my life and
    this is the story of how he persuades his wife to
    marry him - while they investigate a murder of course.
