Clouds of Witness

by Dorothy L. Sayers

Well written, intricate murder mystery. Lord Peter Wimsey brings his renowned detective skills to the aid of his brother, the Duke of Denver, when the Duke is charged with the murder of his sister Mary's fiance.

I enjoyed the book and highly recommend it to mystery fans, but I really didn't "get" the odd slang dialect used by some of the aristocracy, including Lord Peter himself, while some of the servants converse in perfect English. Maybe that's the way it was in 1920's England, I don't expect that the author would simply invent that.

There is a lot packed into this crime / mystery novel. Plots, counter-plots, suspense, treachery, surprise twists, and even a little humor. I enjoyed it very much. Highly recommended.

The Seven Secrets

by William le Queux

As a fan of the genre, this book was an extremely disappointing read for me. It sets a new low-water mark for how bad a book can be. Slow, tedious, and ridiculous.

The End of Her Honeymoon

by Marie Belloc Lowndes

About midway through the book, I was fully wrapped up in the plot - a very intriguing "missing person" mystery. From there things go downhill and ultimately collapse into a nonsensical ending. If I could rate this book in two halves, I would give 5 stars and 1 star.
