|| Married at last, Lord Peter and Harriet find their honeymoon interrupted by a killer It took several near-death experiences for Lord Peter Wimsey to convince Harriet Vane to be his wife, but she has finally relented. When the dapper detective marries Britain's most popular mystery author-just a few short years after rescuing her from the hangman's noose-the press could not be more excited. But Lord Peter and his bride have no interest in spending their wedding night surrounded by reporters. They sneak out of their own reception to begin their honeymoon early, out of sight of the world. Unfortunately, for some couples, calamity is inescapable. On their 1st morning together, the newlyweds discover the house's caretaker bludgeoned to death in the manor's basement. If they thought finding a few minutes alone was difficult, they're up against even steeper odds. In a house full of suspects, identifying the killer won't be easy.
