Whose Body? by Dorothy L. Sayers – Part Two

We discuss chapters 5-9 of Dorothy L. Sayers first novel in her Lord Peter Wimsey series. As the police continue to protest Wimsey’s involvement with the case, we get to the dense core of the novel, complete with coronary hearings, debates between the Lords Wimsey and Parker, plus a ceaseless list of people named William. Many have said the heart of the novel lies in the interactions between Bunter and Wimsey in this chapter. Can Herds get to the bottom of it all, or is the case all a bit too clinical?
