The Late Scholar

(The fourth book in the Lord Peter Wimsey and Harriet Vane series)
A novel by

2014 CWA Historical Dagger (shortlist)

'Cleverly plotted . . . Walsh's pitch-perfect re-creation of the charismatic leads is a delight' - Publishers Weekly
'Delicious' - Booklist

Lord Peter Wimsey is delighted to discover that along with a dukedom he has inherited the duties of 'visitor' at an Oxford college. When the fellows ask him to resolve a college dispute, he and Harriet are all too keen to spend some time in Oxford.

But the dispute quickly turns sour. The voting is evenly balanced between two passionate parties, and the Warden - who has the casting vote - has mysteriously disappeared. Even worse, several of the fellows begin dying unexpectedly.

And the deaths of the deceased fellows bear an uncanny resemblance to the murders in Peter's past cases - murders that Harriet has used in her published novels . . .
