In A Presumption of Death, Jill Paton Walsh tells how World War II changed the lives of Peter, Harriet and their growing family. The story opens in 1940. Harriet Vane - now Lady Peter Wimsey - has taken her children to safety in the country. But the war has followed them: glamorous RAF pilots and even more glamorous land-girls scandalise the villagers; the blackout makes the night-time lanes as sinister as the back alleys of London. Then the village's first air raid practise ends with a very real body on the ground - not a war casualty but a case of plain, old-fashioned murder. And even before the second body is found, Lord Peter Wimsey and his brilliant wife are on their way to finding the killer. Once again, Jill Paton Walsh has invented a mystery plot worthy of Sayers herself, while faultlessly capturing the voice of one of the most compelling writers of the twentieth century.… (més)

Nice to see Lord Peter & Harriet & Bunter again! 1939-1940: WW2 is going on & on the home front, there is rationing, air raid drills & evacuees... and a murder or two to be cleared up! ( )

In this outing, the world is at war for the second time in a century and Harriet and the children have retreated to Tallboys, their house out in the country to avoid the blitz, taking with them the children of Peter's sister Mary. Peter is away on a mission and Harriet is settling into country life when, during the first air raid drill, a farm girl is murdered. Asked by the local police to help, Harriet finds a suspect, who the promptly winds up dead. The mystery turns out to be the least interesting part of the story as we get a picture of war time England and of a truely happy marriage ( )

Honoria Lucasta, Dowager Duchess of Denver, to her
American friend, Cornelia, wife of Lambert B.
Vander-Huysen, of New York.

Bredon Hall,                                            12th November, 1939
Duke's Denver, Norfolk

Dear Cornelia,
I think I had better write you my usual Christmas letter now, because naturally the war has upset the posts a little; and one can't really expect ships to go quickly when they are convoyed about like a school crocodile, so tedious for them, or keep to Grand Geometry, or whatever the straight course is called, when they have to keep darting about like snipe to avoid submarines, and anyway I like to get my correspondence in hand early and not do it at the last moment with one's mind full of Christmas trees - though I suppose there will be a shortage of those this year, but, as I said to our village school-mistress, so long as the children get their presents I don't suppose they'll mind whether you hang them on a conifer or the Siegfried Line, and as a matter of fact Denver is thinning a lot of little firs out of the plantation, and you'd better ask him for one before he sends them all to the hospitals.
