18) Dorothy L Sayers — The Unpleasantness at the Bellona Club

The fourth Lord Peter Wimsey book. There’s an entertaining mystery to be had here, but it’s wrapped in a superb portrait of 1928 England. The book is by turns heart-breaking and heart-warming, as Sayers turns in a virtuoso display of showing rather than telling what has happened to even the characters who on the surface seem unscathed by the Great War. Logged earlier today.
