2016 book 68

Dorothy Sayers' The Five Red Herrings
So this entry in the Peter Wimsey series is, frankly, kind of dull. A guy is murdered at some combo artist/fishing resort in Scotland, and there are six suspects, and everyone runs around talking about train timetables and bicycles and it just DRAGS. None of these characters are fleshed out and even Peter doesn't have much to do, so I wasn't really invested in whodunnit. I also found the end mildly disappointing. I'm glad that Harriet Vane comes back into the picture in the next one--that should liven things up. B-.
