From the publisher:
The sixth book in Dorothy L Sayers’ classic Lord Peter Wimsey series, introduced by actor Edward Petherbridge – a must-read for fans of Agatha Christie’s Poirot and Margery Allingham’s Campion Mysteries. Can Lord Peter Wimsey prove that Harriet Vane is not guilty of murder – or find the real poisoner in time to save her from the gallows? Impossible, it seems. The Crown’s case is watertight. The police are adamant that the right person is on trial. The judge’s summing-up is also clear. Harriet Vane is guilty of the killing her lover. And Harriet Vane shall hang. But the jury disagrees. ‘She brought to the detective novel originality, intelligence, energy and wit.’ P. D. James
I’ve never been so invested in a romance – even the ones I’ve been personally involved in – as I am in that of Harriet Vane and Lord Peter Wimsey. Strong Poison is where it all starts: Harriet Vane on trial for the murder of her lover; Lord Peter on the case to prove her innocence.
