When copywriter Victor Dean falls to his death down a spiral staircase in the respected British advertising firm of Pym's, the fatality looks accidental. However, the victim's sister finds a suspicious half-written letter among his effects and prevails upon the head of the firm to hire private investigator Lord Peter Wimsey undercover as a copywriter so he can look into the case. It turns out there is much more to the death, and the victim's life, than meets the eye, and several more deaths (as well as a beating of Wimsey's brother-in-law, Chief-Inspector Parker) ensue. Wimsey also gets to enjoy creating ad campaigns and a spirited game of cricket. A delightful look inside an advertising agency as well as an engaging tale from the middle of Sayers's Lord Peter series.
