Dorothy L. Sayers, perhaps the finest detective novelist of the Golden Age, is most famous for her dashing amateur sleuth, Lord Peter Wimsey. Gaudy Night is the tenth book in her Peter Wimsey series, but the first to be narrated entirely by his love, Harriet Vane.
When Harriet attends her Oxford reunion, known as the Gaudy, she find herself ensnared in a nightmare of romance and terror as the prim academic setting is haunted by a rash of bizarre pranks: scrawled obscenities, burnt effigies, and threatening letters. With only the tiniest shreds of clues, to find the culprit she'll need all her powers of detection as well as those of Lord Peter Wimsey.
