Dorothy L. Sayers was well known for "combining detective writing with expert novelistic writing," and the imaginative ways in which her victims were disposed of. Among the many causes of death seen in her novels were, among others, poisoned teeth fillings, a cat with poisoned claws, and a dagger made of ice! . Later on in her life, Dorothy Sayers gave up detective fiction to pursue her other interests. She spent the last years of her life working on an English translation of Dante's Divine Comedy, having always claimed that religion and medieval studies were subjects more worthy of her time than writing detective stories.

This is one of the funniest of DLS's novels. Sayers worked in an ad agency, so she can blithely satirize all the silliness. all the tricks and deceptions, that go into ad campaigns. Lord Peter Wimsey representing himself as Death Bredon,takes a turn at copywriting at an agency that has had a death on its staircase. Everything he discovers about the craft of pushing products remains true today; only the technology has changed. Since I first read this novel, I have remained painfully aware of the difference between "made from" and "made with." Sayers's novels, beautifully written, continue to to represent absolute mastery of the genre. This, and all her novels, make many of the grammatically disadvantaged current crop sound amateurist by comparison.
What a joy it is to be able to reread any one of the mysteries of Dorothy L. Sayers for one who earlier in life devoured everything she wrote. Murder Must Advertise is one of her truly top-notch works. It takes place in Pym's Advertising Agency in London at the moment when Mr. Death Bredon is employed to replace a copywriter who has just fallen downstairs and broken his neck. We learn a great deal about advertising in the year 1923 which seems pertinent today, as does the workings of the drug cartels both of which Mr. Bredon has to deal with. We also learn a great deal more than we wished to know about how the game of cricket is played, but be patient, reader, it is pertinent to the story. Also pertinent is the relationship between Mr. Bredon and Lord Peter Whimsey, Sayers much more famous detective. Recommended for all who love a good mystery done by a master of writing.
Dorothy L. Sayers disliked this book, and claimed this book was tossed-off to meet a publication deadline she couldn't make with her next Lord Peter Wimsey novel, THE NINE TAILORS, due to the extensive research she did on Church Bell Ringing - but she's wrong as it's one of the most enjoyable of the series! A possible murder mystery crossed with a sharp but loving satire of the British Advertising Industry between the Wars, with Lord Peter pretending to be his cousin, Mr. Death Breden - a man of upper-class education & breeding, but no real income, taking a job as an ad copywriter. Somewhere in there is a drug ring catering to the "Bright Young Things" of the period, and Mr. Breden's seeming attempt to cut himself in for a piece of the action - which traces back, in a curious way, to the ad agency....

A former copywriter herself, Sayers' ribbing of the business is spot-on, as are the day-to-day details - one funny bit near the climax is Lord Peter chafing that an elaborate ad campaign he started has to be left in other hands, as he's needed to catch some villains. There's even a strong-willed female copywriter, Miss Meteyard, smart enough to suspect "Mr. Breden" is Lord Peter Wimsey - another self-portait by Miss Sayers, and a bit sharper-edged than Harriet Vane (who does not appear by name in this book, and is only accorded a brief in-passing mention).

Sometimes the writer is the last to know - but this book is well worth savoring for its portrait of advertising, and making a living in the UK in the 1930s if you're not the younger brother of a Duke.
As I was reading this book I kept thinking to myself, "Now Sayers has hit her stride. Now she's at the top of her game." I say that each time I read on of her books because they get better and better as the series progresses, but I always sincerely mean it. This book is awesome. So much fun. So much of that wry, dry British humor that I love. It's a really masterful bit of detective fiction in which we see our hero functioning as a working man rather than a man of leisure. I did have a bit of trouble following along with the cricket match at the end because I know very little about the game and I kept visualizing baseball, but that was only one chapter and it didn't really bother me. If you skim that part, be sure to at least read the last couple pages of the chapter because something important will happen at the conclusion of the game. The only thing I really disliked was that the villains are part of one of those incredibly deadly secret societies that were so popular in 1930's Britain, but I feel as if I couldn't have expected Sayers to avoid that plot device forever. It was too ubiquitous. Still, this story was so much fun to read that I would highly recommend it to fans of old fashioned detective fiction.
Risky Strong Dromedary
I've always loved this one. It's a past world when it discusses the "nuts and bolts" of old-style paper advertisements, making one realize how much easier it is in the Digital Age. But the satirizing of commercialism, of getting the public to buy things they had no idea they needed/wanted, remains as true today as it was in Sayers' time.

There's an enormous number of characters in this story, far more than most authors would attempt. It's a tribute to Sayers' talent that the reader can envision each one and keep them separate. The action throws unlikely characters together by accident, just like in real life, and those office politics were just as deadly in 1933 as they are in 2017!

The Harlequin is the only weak note. I get that Sayers needed a plot device to work in the villains, but it is an awkward element and never gets any less so.
