Series:

Lord Peter Wimsey/Harriet Vane

Biographical note:

JILL PATON WALSH is the Booker Prize-nominated and Whitbread Prize-winning author of several adult novels, numerous mysteries, including her continuation of Dorothy L. Sayers' Lord Peter Wimsey mysteries Thrones, Dominations and A Presumption of Death, and many award-winning children's books. She lives in Cambridge, England. DOROTHY L. SAYERS, whom The Los Angeles Times named "one of the greatest mystery writers of [the twentieth] century," died in 1957.

Main description:

In Jill Paton Walsh's fourth installment in her inspired continuation of Dorothy L. Sayers's acclaimed mysteries, Lord Peter Wimsey and his detective novelist wife, Harriet Vane, revisit their beloved Oxford, where a long and literate courtship finally culminated in their engagement.

To his surprise, Lord Peter, as the Duke of Denver, has been charged with settling a dispute among the Fellows of St. Severin's College, Oxford University. At first, the stalemate seems the result of a simple difference of opinion about a valuable manuscript. Some of the Fellows regard the book as nothing but an insurance liability that should be sold to finance a speculative purchase of land. The voting is evenly balanced. The Warden would normally cast the deciding vote, but he has disappeared. And when several of the Fellows die unexpectedly, Lord Peter and Harriet set off on an investigation to uncover what is really going on at St. Severin's.

With this return to the Oxford of Gaudy Night, which many readers regard as their favorite of Sayers's original series, Jill Paton Walsh revives the wit and brilliant plotting of the Golden Age of detective fiction with The Late Scholar.

Review quote:

An entertaining and convoluted puzzle for readers who enjoy Golden Age mysteries.

Review quote:

Cleverly plotted....Walsh's pitch-perfect re-creation of the charismatic leads is a delight. Sayers fans can only hope for more.

Review quote:

Delicious.

Review quote:

Faithful to Sayers' legacy and amplified by Walsh's own considerable talents, The Late Scholar offers a smart plot, a look at beloved characters' later lives and an evocative examination of academia. Readers will hope that it's not the last installment in a rewarding and authentic continuation of a cherished series.

Review quote:

Fans will eagerly welcome back their beloved sleuth and enjoy seeing Harriet hold her own in a thoughtfully constructed mystery.

Review quote:

If you love the books of Dorothy L. Sayers as I do, you will be elated to learn that Peter Wimsey and Harriet Vane are at their scholarly and detective best in [The Late Scholar]….Somewhere Sayers is applauding.

Review quote:

In The Late Scholar, Ms. Walsh once more succeeds in emulating and extending her late inspiration's unusual mixture of drama and foolishness, poetry and prattle, local color and grim undercurrents.
