Clouds of Witness

by Dorothy L. Sayers

After the events of Whose Body? (also available in Large Print from the Large Print Book Company), Lord Peter Wimsey goes on an extended holiday in Corsica. Returning to Paris, he receives the news that his sister Mary’s fiancé, Captain Denis Cathcart, has been found shot dead outside the Wimseys’ shooting lodge at Riddlesdale in Yorkshire. His brother, Gerald, Duke of Denver, has been arrested for the murder. Cathcart was killed by a bullet from Denver’s revolver, and Denver’s only alibi is that he was out for a walk at the time Cathcart died. There are too many witnesses and too many stories behind Cathcart’s death, as Lord Peter soon finds out. Published October 2016.

The Lerouge Case

by Emile Gaboriau

The Lerouge Case is a pioneering crime novel that not only introduced the amateur detective (Tabaret) who, as Sherlock Holmes did later, uses acute observation and logic to solve crimes but is also a fascinating work of fiction in its own right, full of twists and turns of plot and complex and flawed characters. The story begins with the discovery of a murdered old woman in a provincial village. The crime was obviously staged to look like a burglary, but the true motive only becomes known by tracing a series of relationships and events—and the dark secret that binds them together. Published November 2016.
