This Book’s a Winner

Murder Must Advertise (The Lord Peter Wimsey Mysteries Book 10) by [Dorothy L. Sayers]

One of the things keeping me out of the booby hatch lately is a crackerjack mystery novel, Murder Must Advertise, by Dorothy L. Sayers. I’m re-reading it and I don’t want it to end.

Lord Peter Wimsey gets called in to solve a murder at an advertising agency, where he goes undercover as a copy-writer. Dorothy Sayers worked for several years as an advertising copy-writer, and she knows all the ins and outs of the business. In fact, her depiction of the agency is so fascinating, you almost don’t care about the murder.

Just to show you what the author knows, Ms. Sayers considered this one of her least best books, didn’t like it much. She never realized what a terrific book it was!

I’d like to say more, but again the computer’s giving me fits and I don’t know whether I’ll be able to post this or not. Suffice it to say that this is one of my all-time favorite mysteries–and it does a superb job of taking your mind off whatever’s bugging you.

  1. It’s funny, but sometimes artists are not all that impressed with the best of their own work.

    So, are you simply having Internet access problems?

    1. Both of them, all the time–can’t stay connected for ten minutes at a stretch. And the IT guy says it wasn’t the modem after all.

    2. These stinkin’ ISPs love to tell you that you need a modem. If you have any other Internet Service Providers available, it might be worth the call. Based upon what you’ve told us, the flaw almost certainly is on their side.
