The Late Scholar

Jill Paton Walsh


This book was not quite terrible, but close. I can read and reread Sayers’ writing for her wonderful characters, who are missing from this book. Each book in the series has weaker and weaker characters until they are missing in action in this one. And when they do appear, they do unbelievable things. No way would Lord Peter have forced Bunter to sit down and eat dinner with him and Harriet. I hope she doesn’t write any more. It’s like fan fiction by someone who isn’t really a fan.
