The wealthy Agatha Dawson is dead—a trifle sooner than expected—but there are no apparent signs of foul play. Lord Peter Wimsey, however, senses that something is amiss and refuses to let the case rest—even without any clues or leads.
Suddenly, he is faced with another murder: Agatha’s maid. Can super-sleuth Wimsey find the murderer and solve the case before he becomes the killer’s next victim?
The intricate trail of horror and senseless murder leads from a beautiful Hampshire village to a fashionable London flat and a deliberate test of amour.

Clever, at times gorgeous writing...
…and a case to match. Sayers was a master, and she’s cooked up a tale that is both heartbreaking and funny. Ian Carmichael is a pleasure as the narrator, bringing to life a great range of characters up and down the social ladder. There is suspenseful action, strong emotion, and a real sense of place. “Unnatural Death” is so involving, and so well done that you will forget you’ve only _heard_ this story, not lived it. If you like classic English mysteries, and good writing very well presented, don’t miss it. This recording makes clear why it is a pity that more of Sayers work isn’t available in audio.
