Read by Ian Carmichael.

In 1936, Dorothy L. Sayers abandoned the last Lord Peter Wimsey detective story.
Sixty years later, a brown paper parcel containing a copy of the manuscript was
discovered in her agent's safe in London, and award-winning novelist Jill Paton
Walsh was commissioned to complete it. The result of the pairing of Dorothy L.
Sayers with Walsh was the international bestseller "Thrones, Dominations".
Asked by her new husband, the gentleman detective Lord Peter Wimsey, why she is
having trouble writing her latest mystery novel, Harriet Vane explains,
"When I needed the money, it justified itself. It was a job of work, and I did
it as well as I could, and that was that. But now, you see, it has no necessity
except itself. And, of course, it's hard; it's always been hard, and it's
getting harder. So when I'm stuck I think, this isn't my livelihood, and it isn't
great art, it's only detective stories. You read them and write them for fun."
Is this a clue to the mystery of why Dorothy L. Sayers put aside her 13th full-
length Lord Peter novel in 1938 and never finished it? She had made lots of money,
and was much more interested in translating Dante and writing about religion.
Or is it another excellent novelist, Jill Paton Walsh, speculating--in a perfect
imitation of Sayers's voice--on what might have happened? Walsh was invited by
the estate of Sayers' illegitimate son, Anthony Fleming, to finish Thrones,
Dominations. She has done a splendid job, certain to please Sayers loyalists on
the "dorothyl" listserv as well as those new to the Wimsey canon. Lord Peter has
been made much more human and interesting by marriage; Harriet is a wise and
acerbic companion; and the story, about the murders of two beautiful young women
involved with a theatrical producer, is full of twists and connivance. (There's
also a fascinating subplot involving the soon-to-abdicate King Edward VII and
a country on the brink of the second world war).
