The wealthy old woman was dead -- a trifle sooner than expected. The intricate trail of horror and senseless murder led from a beautiful hampshire village to a fashionable London flat and a deliberate test of amour  -- staged by the debonair sleuth Lord Peter Wimsey.

"Here the modern detective story begins to come to its own; and all the historical importance aside, it remains an absorbing and charming story today."

Dorothy L. Sayers is one of my favorite authors. I have read every one of her novels about Lord Peter Wimsey several times, and I never fail to be delighted. Some of her mysteries are simple, some are wickedly complex, but all are entertaining and just plain fun to read! Her slow development of the romance between Lord Peter and Harriet Vane is from another time, when love took time to grow and patience was a primary virtue. This novel is third in the series, before the entry of Harriet Vane, so the focus is on Lord Peter and Bunter, his wonderful valet. The mystery builds around the unexpected, and possibly suspicious death of an elderly cancer patient. There is some violence in this novel, but in the manner of Greek plays it happens off-stage and we are left to deal with the consequences. It isn't necessary to read the Lord Peter Wimsey novels in sequence, but doing so affords the reader the pleasure of watching the author and the characters develop their many talents.
Dorothy Sayers's Lord Peter Wimsey novels are an excellent example of Golden-Age-Detective fiction. Lord Peter is a young aristocrat who enjoys collecting rare books, drinking fine liquor, and solving murder mysteries. His valet, Bunter, and a detective from Scotland Yard, Parker, aid him in his sleuthing.

UNNATURAL DEATH is a solid entry in this excellent series. Lord Peter seems to be confronted by the perfect crime, murder that looks just like natural death and leaves no traces.

Sayers is an excellent author. Her prose is full of wit, charm, and social commentary. Readers interested in the years between the wars will enjoy her ideas. This book also has some nice scenes in which Peter and others engage in some soul searching and questioning of the conscience. How much is justice really worth? I highly recommend the book.

I have a few thoughts on this Kindle edition by Open Road. This edition is very well done, and it includes an active table of contents that links to each of the twenty-three chapters. Pressing forward and backward on the five-way controller will bring you to the ToC, Part One, Part Two, Part Three, and the appendices. This edition has a biography of Dorothy Sayers in an appendix, which includes photographs. The novel also has a genealogy of the victim's family in an appendix, which is unfortunately unreadable in this kindle edition (both on e-ink Kindle and iPad). I was a little disappointed to find a handful of typos in the text. It's much cleaner than the average free ebook you get from Amazon, but for almost $8, I expected the text to be of the same quality as a printed copy.
Dorothy L. Sayers' 1927 book, "Unnatural Death," is the third in her Lord Peter Wimsey mysteries. I haven't read the whole series yet, but this one's the best of the first three. As usual for Sayers, the writing is excellent. It's so good and so modernly written, that you forget that the book is 87 years old (that is, until you hit the occasional change to social mores or the technological chasms that have sprung up since then). But that just makes the book more amazing. Compared to the first two books, I'm much happier with Wimsey's speech and behavior than the first, and the pacing is much better than the second. My only issue with the story is how Sayers wants us to misconstrue the relationship between two of the characters when it's extremely obvious that it's not what she wants us to believe. But, that's fairly minor. So, I'm very happy to rate the book at a Very Good 4 stars out of 5.

Note: my numbering differs from Amazon's because they include collections of short stories whereas my list is just of novels. Also, I can only include 10 links in the review, so the 11th Wimsey book is just a title.
Dorothy Sayers' well-plotted mysteries were written in a time before electronic surveillance and cell phones. Lord Peter Wimsey, her main character, logically solves murders in England of the 1920's, '30s,and so on.
I don't try to 'solve' murders before the end of the book because I love watching the process of the solution. Dorothy Sayers' writing is classic in its incisive wit and description. I've been a fan since one of my college English teachers mentioned this artist.
The fact that they're now available on Kindle is a real treat. That means I no longer have to keep track of where her books are on a crowded bookshelf.
Enjoy this book and try the other mysteries she's written.
I am pleased to review this novel as I'm a huge fan of Dorothy L. Sayers. Lord Peter Wimsey is as alive to me as he was when I discovered him as a young woman. I am only saying, read this and all other in this series. You will enjoy every page as Lord Peter and his loyal valet/batman, Hunter lead you through a great adventure. As these larger than life figures lead you through an England that no longer exists, you will not believe that murder can be so enjoyable.
Dorothy Sayers is an excellent writer. This book portrays a "modern" woman, writer Harriet Vane, who works and supports herself and is accused of poisoning her ex-lover. It was probably a risque theme at the time it was written. One of a series, it stands alone well. Be advised that derogatory terms used at the time this was written are present.
