Mystery writer Harriet Vane, recovering from an unhappy love affair and its aftermath, seeks solace on a barren beach - deserted but for the body of a bearded young man with his throat cut. From the moment she photographs the corpse, which soon disappears with the tide, she is puzzled by a mystery that might have been suicide, murder, or a political plot. With her dear friend Lord Peter Wimsey, she begins to investigate.

Maybe you have to really love Peter Wimsey to plow through what at first seems a superficial story. But you know better, because Harriet Vane is at the center, or at least at the center of Wimsey's attention. I enjoyed the two steps forward, one step back progression of their relationship, and the mystery does get deeper. Some of the characters seem terribly dated and it's hard to be patient with that part. But human beings in all their goodness and badness are portrayed again by Sayers in this complex mystery.

The book was okay – but not one of my favorites.
