A wealthy general dies in his club, surrounded by fellow veterans—and Lord Peter must battle to solve the case Even the Bellona Club’s most devoted members would never call it lively. Its atmosphere is that of a morgue—or, at best, a funeral parlor—and on Armistice Day the gloom is only heightened. Veterans of the Great War gather at the Bellona not to hash over old victories, but to stare into their whiskies and complain about old injuries, shrinking pensions, and the lingering effects of shell shock. Though he acts jolly, Lord Peter Wimsey finds the holiday grim. And this Armistice Day, death has come to join the festivities. The aged General Fentiman—a hero of the Crimean War—expires sitting up in his favorite chair. Across town, his sister dies on the same day, throwing the General’s half-million-pound inheritance into turmoil. As the nation celebrates and suspicions run riot, Lord Peter must discover what kind of soldier would have the nerve to murder a general. The Unpleasantness at the Bellona Club is the 5th 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.

Das Opfer hatte sich bei allen anderen Künstlern unbeliebt gemacht. Alle sechs Verdächtigen haben ein Motiv, aber nur einer kann es gewesen sein. The Queen of Crime: Dorothy L. Sayers

Unpleasantness at the Bellona Club by Dorothy L. Sayers 90-year-old General Fentiman was definitely dead, but no one knew exactly when he had died - and the time of death was the determining factor in a half-million-pound inheritance. Lord Peter Wimsey would need every bit of his amazing skills to unravel the mysteries of why the General's lapel was without a red poppy on Armistice Day, how the club's telephone was fixed without a repairman, and, most puzzling of all, why the great man's knee swung freely when the rest of him was stiff with rigor mortis.

Das letzte Wort Kopfüber stürzt der junge Victor Dean die gusseiserne Treppe bei Pyms Werbedienst in London hinunter – er ist sofort tot. Ein Unfall? Oder hat jemand nachgeholfen? Nur wenige Tage nach Deans Beerdigung schleust Lord Peter Wimsey sich inkognito als Texter in die Agentur ein. Als Werber macht er sich gar nicht schlecht, doch in Wirklichkeit interessiert ihn nur, wie es zu dem tödlichen Sturz seines Bürovorgängers kommen konnte. Steht die Firma womöglich in Verbindung mit einem Rauschgiftring?

On Armistice Day, the hallowed calm of the Bellona Club is shattered rather unpleasantly when the ancient General Fentiman is discovered dead in his chair by the fireplace. It seems a straightforward passing away from natural causes - though, curiously enough, the General's estranged sister Lady Dormer also died that very morning. And when solicitor Mr. Murbles explains to Lord Peter Wimsey that the exact moment of General Fentiman's death will determine the beneficiary of a fortune, the gentleman sleuth is spurred to investigate...
