This was my very first Lord Peter Wimsey book, and this is the book that made me fall in love with him and the entire world he lives in.
I mean, how does this synopsis not intrigue you???
The story is really funny and keeps you engaged until the end. The book isn’t too big, only 212 pages so you could possibly read it in one go.
The book (and the series as a whole) is pretty well written and they are so incredibly funny. Like I mentioned before, the character names are hilarious, the situations are hilarious and basically, Lord Peter is a huge, spoiled child and Bunter is the one guy who keeps him in check. The story itself is pretty realistic, I mean, for as far as you can find a dead, overweight, unknown naked person in your bath.
This is a great first time detective, because you don’t really need to think much, it’s funny, and it isn’t that difficult to read. Honestly, if you want to start reading detectives and don’t know where to start, Lord Peter is a great series to start with!
