Unnatural Death - Dorothy L. Sayers

I´m turning into a Lord Peter Wimsey fangirl. These books are so much fun. And I just want to urge everyone to read this book, because Miss Climpson gets introduced. And Miss Climpson with her odd style in writing letters and her attitude has become one of my favorite characters almost immediately.


The odd thing about Unnatural Death is that Lord Peter doesn´t have an actual murder to investigate. He much rather has a hunch that something is fishy about the natural death of Agatha Dawson and from there the hunt for a murderer begins, even though the Police and Lord Peter haven´t a lot to work with.


One thing that bothered me, though, was that everyone, whether it being Lord Peter, Parker or Miss Climpson, didn´t have their a-game on solving the mystery. I suspected a major plot point early on and the murder method was clear to me as well. The big moment of revelation for the characters fell a bit flat for me and I was puzzled by the fact that everyone was so slow on the uptake. I guess everyone is allowed to have a bad day every once in a while, even Lord Peter Wimsey.
