Dear Librarians,

Lord Peter Wimsey was one of the best loved, and best-selling detectives of the Golden Age of detective fiction.

His first case THE ATTENBURY EMERALDS, was never before written up, but it can be dated to 1921, the glamorous age of unrestrained pleasure-seeking in high society.

Here's what the London Financial Times had to say:

"Luckily, Wimsey has Jill Paton Walsh to continue his life, cunningly framing his first case as a remembrance that serves as an origin and an encapsulation...The result? A pitch-perfect Golden Age mystery; not a pastiche but a gem of a period puzzle that belongs on the shelf beside the Wimsey originals."

Enjoy!
