He lay uncomfortably bunched up on the extreme seaward edge of the rock, his knees drawn high and showing his pale mauve socks. The head, tucked closely down between the shoulders, was invisible. His head must almost be hanging over the edge. That would be something like publicity.

He lay uncomfortably bunched up on the extreme seaward edge of the rock, his knees drawn high and showing his pale mauve socks. The head, tucked closely down between the shoulders, was invisible. His head must almost be hanging over the edge. That would be something like publicity. From the moment she photographs the corpse, which soon disappears with the tide, she is puzzled by a mystery that might have been suicide, murder or a political plot.

With the appearance of her dear friend Lord Peter Wimsey, she finds a reason for detective pursuit -- as only the two of them can pursue it.

We have an older woman, desperate for love; her younger lover who wants an empire; and a son who sees his inheritance disappearing into the clutches of a gigolo. And so the scene is set for a murder.

It could have been, but This is one of the most complicated murders I have ever read. But also one of the most entertaining. We have the involvement of the Russians, a little reminiscent of the missing Russian Princess Anastasia, and a whole plethora of red herrings for Lord Peter and Miss Vane to fish through.

The missing. With that small exception, this remains one of my favorite Lord Peter Wimsey novels. Dorothy L. She is also known for her plays and essays.

Have His Carcase: Episode One

Plot[ edit ] During a hiking holiday at the resort of Wilvercombe on the South West coast of England, the detective novelist Harriet Vane discovers the body of a man lying on an isolated rock on the shore; his throat has been cut. There are no footprints in the sand other than hers and those of the victim. Unfortunately, the corpse is washed away by the rising tide before she can summon help. Alerted to the discovery by a friend, Lord Peter Wimsey arrives, and he and Harriet start their investigations. The victim is identified as Paul Alexis, a young man of Russian extraction, employed by the local hotel as a professional dancing partner. Wimsey and Harriet discover that in the period leading up to his death Alexis, an avid reader of Ruritanian romances , had believed himself to be a descendant of Tsar Nicholas I of Russia.
