Publisher's Summary

In A Presumption of Death, Jill Paton Walsh tells how World War II changed the lives of Peter, Harriet and their growing family.

The story opens in 1940. Harriet Vane - now Lady Peter Wimsey - has taken her children to safety in the country. But the war has followed them: glamorous RAF pilots and even more glamorous land-girls scandalise the villagers; the blackout makes the nighttime lanes as sinister as the back alleys of London. Then the village's first air raid practise ends with a very real body on the ground - not a war casualty but a case of plain, old-fashioned murder. And even before the second body is found, Lord Peter Wimsey and his brilliant wife are on their way to finding the killer.

    "Better than Sayers on her own!"

    Great narrator, for me he is Lord Peter. Can't wait to read another read by him.

    Story
    "Not quite Dorothy L Sayers but not far off"

    I love Lord Peter Wimsey and Ian Carmichael's narration is peerless in my opinion so I approached this with some trepidation. Whilst the solution is not as complex as many of Dorothy L Sayers stories I think Jill Paton Walsh has managed to capture the spirit of the characters beautifully and Edward Petheridge makes a decent fist of the narration.
