Thrones, Dominations, by Dorothy L. Sayers & Jill Paton Walsh

Dorothy Sayers began Thrones, Dominations in 1936, but soon left it behind to concentrate on other projects, including a translation of Dante’s Inferno. The book was to be another of Sayer’s detective novels featuring Lord Peter Wimsey and the fifth of these novels to include Harriet Vane, whose neck Peter saves in Strong Poison and whom he courts through five years of rejection, recounted in Have His Carcass, Gaudy Night and Busman’s Honeymoon. The events of Thrones, Dominations take place during the early months of Lord Peter and Harriet Vane’s marriage.
