Description:
Sixty years after Dorothy L. Sayers began her unfinished Lord Peter Wimsey novel,Thrones Dominations, Booker Prize finalist Jill Paton Walsh took on the challenge of completing the manuscript---with extraordinary success. “The transition is seamless,” said theSan Francisco Chronicle; “you cannot tell where Sayers leaves off and Walsh begins.”

“Will Paton Walsh do it again?” wondered Ruth Rendell in London’sSunday Times.
“Sayers’ fans are in Walsh’s debt.” ---San Francisco Chronicle

"The setting is authentic and the story is gripping, but this is also a serious and committed book." --Barbara Reynolds, President of the Dorothy L. Sayers Society and author ofDorothy L. Sayers: Her Life and Soul
Jill Paton Walshis the author of six novels for adults, one of which,Knowledge of Angels, was shortlisted for the Booker Prize. Before writing for adults she made a career as a writer of children’s books and has won many literary prizes. In addition she is the author of two crime novels:The Wyndham CaseandA Piece of Justice, which was shortlisted for the Crime Writers Association Gold Dagger Award.

Dorothy L. Sayers, the greatest of the golden age detective novelists, was born in Oxford in 1893. She was one of the first women to be awarded a degree by Oxford University and worked as a copywriter in an advertising agency from 1921 to 1932. Her aristocratic detective, Lord Peter Wimsey, became one of the most popular fictional heroes of the twentieth century. Dorothy L. Sayers also became famous for her religious plays, notablyThe Man Born to Be King, which was broadcast controversially during the war years, but she considered her translation of Dante’sDivine Comedyto be her best work. She died in 1957.
