I´m so glad I picked up the second book in the Lord Peter Wimsey series.
I enjoyed the first book, but I felt it was an odd one with, as far as I can remember, its emphasis on the forensics and Wimsey´s urge to talk incessantly. He still does that in the second book, but now I have realized that he is rambling on whenever he needs to confuse his audience. And it is glorious.
This was such a fun read. I love the Wimsey clan, Bunter, the trial of Lord Peter´s brother with all the peers in attendance and of course Detective Parker and Lady Mary. I adore Parker and his crush on Lady Mary.
Admittedly, the actual murder mystery was a bit confusing. But that the only reason why I have given this book four stars.
I might not come as a suprise, but I can´t wait to read the next book in the series.
