Though the Great War has left his nerves frayed with shellshock, Wimsey continues to be London's greatest sleuth--and he's about to encounter his oddest case yet.   A strange corpse has appeared in a suburban architect's bathroom, stark naked save for an incongruous pince-nez. When Wimsey arrives on the scene, he is confronted with a once-in-a-lifetime puzzle. The police suspect that the bathtub's owner is the murderer, but Wimsey's investigation quickly reveals that the case is much stranger than anyone could have predicted.   Published in 1923, during detective fiction's Golden Age, Whose Body? introduced a character and a series that would make Dorothy L.

    The Inimitable Jeeves de P. G. Wodehouse (casvelyn)
    casvelyn: Lord Peter Wimsey and Bertie Wooster are rather similar characters, and they both have loyal and competent valets. Peter, of course, solves mysteries, while Bertie is more of a comic figure.

I'll try another. Eventually.

I enjoyed this mystery set in the 1920's. I liked Lord Peter Wimsey's and Mr. Bunter's sense of humor. It was a page turner as I was wanting to find out what happened to Mr. Levy and who the mysterious body found in the bathtub belonged to. ( )

An excellent mystery novel. The dated slang is really distracting, and I can't place some of the references. On the other hand, the epistolary bits and the morbid bits are really quite good. The murderer is a true psychopath; but nobody comes out and says it. He's really quite disturbing. The conversations about morality are worth the trouble. The novel is actually a bit like a play, conveying so much through the conversations, and this works very well.

My recollection is that in later novels Sayers just got better and better at what she was already clearly exceptionally good at in this, her first detective novel. ( )

This was originally on my TBR so I could participate in a virtual book discussion via my library. I cancelled my spot because I needed the time to read the new behemoth Jimmy Carter bio (which I didn't enjoy). I'm really kicking myself now, because it would have been cool to get others' take on this very dated (but apparently still-loved) mystery. I found it hard to enjoy, in no small part because of its anti-Semitism, among other irritants. ( )

There were some really hilarious lines in this

-"She was very sorry indeed about having left the bathroom window open, she reely was, and though I was angry at first, seeing what's come of it, it wasn't anything to speak of, not in the ordinary way, as you might say. Girls will forget things, you know, my lord, and reely she was so distressed I didn't like to say too much to her. All I said was, 'It might have been burglars,' I said, 'remember that, next time you leave a window open all night; this time it was a dead man,' I said, 'and that's unpleasant enough, but next time it might be burglars,'"

Some of the character's opinions were really troubling to absorb, as a modern reader. They may have been representative of opinion at the time, but when you see them now, they make you wince. I guess you don't have to like every character in a novel.

To M. J. Dear Jim: This book is your fault. If it had not been for your brutal insistence, Lord Peter would never have staggered through to the end of the enquiry. Pray consider that he thanks you with his accustomed suavity. Yours ever, D. L. S.

"Look here, Peter," said the other [Parker] with some earnestness, "Suppose you get this playing-fields-of-Eton complex out of your system once and for all. There doesn't seem to be much doubt that something unpleasant has happened to Sir Reuben Levy. Call it murder, to strengthen the argument. If Sir Reuben has been murdered, is it a game? and is it fair to treat it as a game?"
"That is what I'm ashamed of, really," said Lord Peter. "It IS a game to me, to begin with, and I go on cheerfully, and then I suddenly see that somebody is going to be hurt, and I want to get out of it." (Chapter VII, Leipzig: The Albatross 1938, p. 176)
