Apart from her own considerable skills as a novelist, Jill Paton Walsh scored a palpable hit with her exemplary completion of Dorothy Sayers’ unfinished Peter Wimsey novel Thrones, Dominations (a piece of legerdemain she repeated in A Presumption of Death), and here’s some further Wimseyana from Walsh, this time an original outing for the aristocratic sleuth. The Attenbury Diamonds is delivered with quite as much panache as its predecessors; Sayers aficionados will relish this.
