Lord Peter Wimsey goes undercover at an ad agency to find out who pitched a copywriter down a flight of stairs--"Delightful reading" (The New York Times). The iron staircase at Pym's Publicity is a deathtrap, and no one in the advertising agency is surprised when Victor Dean tumbles down it, cracking his skull along the way. Dean's replacement arrives just a few days later--a green copywriter named Death Bredon. Though he displays a surprising talent for the business of selling margarine, alarm clocks, and nerve tonics, Bredon is not really there to write copy. In fact, he is really Lord Peter Wimsey, and he has come to Pym's in search of the man who pushed Dean.   As he tries to navigate the cutthroat world of London advertising, Lord Peter uncovers a mystery that touches on catapults, cocaine, and cricket. But how does one uncover a murderer in a business where it pays to have no soul?   Murder Must Advertise is the 10th book in the Lord Peter Wimsey Mysteries, but you may enjoy the series by reading the books in any order.   This ebook features an illustrated biography of Dorothy L. Sayers including rare images from the Marion E. Wade Center at Wheaton College.… (més)

Well done, but doesn't match the novel in interest.
  themulhern | Apr 10, 2021 |
Really pretty excellent.

The mystery was interesting enough, but the real fun of the story was in the Wimseyisms and the send-up of advertising. Sayers always goes all-in on whichever topic is relevant to the mystery— though in this case she apparently drew on nine years’ experience as a copywriter at an ad agency!

Some other stuff was less convincing, especially the whole Bright Young Things subplot and Wimsey’s double-identity shtick. ( )

Better than butter and half the price.

The world of advertising long before Mad Men, and no less scandalous.

An enjoyable mystery until some dubious ethics right near the end. ( )
  Vividrogers | Dec 20, 2020 |
Lord Peter is incognito at an advertising agency to see if there is anything to investigate about a death and an unsent letter from the deceased. Lots of office politics and dark side of society shenanigans. One of the best, if Bunter-less books. ( )
  quondame | Nov 27, 2020 |
This is, I think, maybe the second best of the Wimsey series (I liked Strong Poison better, but that's my opinion). This one is an intriguing mystery story, plus it has lots of humor (but it's not silly humor, it's the character-oriented kind that does not make the plot trivial). ( )

"And by the way," said Mr. Hankin, arresting Miss Rossiter as she rose to go, "there is a new copy-writer coming in today."
[Author's Note] I do not suppose that there is a more harmless and law-abiding set of people in the world than the Advertising Experts of Great Britain.
[Afterword] The year 1920 is the generally accepted dawn of the Golden Age of detective fiction.

The interview with the cat had been particularly full of appeal. The animal was, it seemed, an illustrious rat-catcher, with many famous deeds to her credit. Not only that, but she had been the first to notice the smell of fire and had, by her anguished and intelligent mewings, attracted the attention of night-watchman number one, who had been in the act of brewing himself a cup of tea when the outbreak took place.
“How do you do?”

“How do you do?” echoed Mr. Ingleby.

They gazed at one another with the faint resentment of two cats at their first meeting.

Mr. Hankin smiled kindly at them both.
