It was quite interesting to read about the inner workings of an advertising agency in London in the 1930s. If I had not read the Introduction, I would not have known that Dorothy Sayers was making fun of P.D. Wodehouse's character Bertie Wooster when she was creating the character that Lord Peter Wimsey was impersonating when he went undercover as a worker at the advertising agency. The mystery got quite complicated as it more than just a mere murder but an attempt to dismantle a large drug dealing arrangement. Towards the end of the book, there was a detailed description of a cricket game that I did not understand at all.

This book was left in the Little Free Library. It was released for the D for December release challenge.
