Description from Goodreads:
The stark naked body was lying in the tub. Not unusual for a proper bath, but highly irregular for murder -- especially with a pair of gold pince-nez deliberately perched before the sightless eyes. What's more, the face appeared to have been shaved after death. The police assumed that the victim was a prominent financier, but Lord Peter Wimsey, who dabbled in mystery detection as a hobby, knew better. In this, his first murder case, Lord Peter untangles the ghastly mystery of the corpse in the bath.

I have read most of the books in this series, but I don't think that I have read this one. This edition looks less ponderous than some of the others on Mt TBR so I may get it read soon. Or not.

I am getting new flooring installed in the half of my house where the vast majority of my books are normally located. As a result, there are very few books not in boxes at the moment. This one was loose and looked like a quick read. I have no clear memory of having read this before, although it was marked as read on my Goodreads shelf. The plot was ingenious enough that it would likely have stuck with me. At any rate, a well-crafted plot and Wimsey and Bunter were in fine form. I can see how this is a case that would not be solved today if not for the coincidence of Lord Peter's connection.
