Lord Peter Wimsey, holidaying in the small Galloway town, was certain that Campbell's death was no accident. There were six undeniable suspects, all with interlocking and watertight alibis. That was, until the six suspects became five red herrings - and one killer.

"Wimsey In His Prime"
I agonised for a while before buying this. I know by now what to expect from Ms Sayers pen, it was simply a question of whether I could listen to a Wimsey not narrated by Ian Carmichael? It turns out I can and enjoy it too.
This is a classic Lord Peter mystery. Patrick Malahide does a sterling job. A must for any fan and a worthwhile try for any fan of quality classic detective fiction.
"Too many facts / details"
I LOVE both Patrick Malahide and Dorothy L Sayers, but found this recording far too chewy.
Lots of lists, including a train timetable, and numerous unintelligible Scottish accents. By the end of the recording I just didn't care who did it.
Am going to download the dramatization next!
