Storyline

Lord Peter is increasingly committed to exonerating Harriet Vane and begins to grow suspicious that Norman Urquhart, cousin of Peter Boyes and nephew/executor of senile but wealthy Mrs. Wrayburn, has substituted a false will for the genuine one making himself the sole heir. Wimsey recruits Miss Murchison. Urquhart's secretary, to his cause and recruits a reformed Cockney thief to teach her how to pick the lock and find the real will. Written by duke1029@aol.com

Quotes

Harriet Vane: You are bearing in mind, aren't you, that I've had a lover?
Lord Peter Wimsey: Oh, yes, so've I. Several, in fact. It's the sort of thing that could happen to anyone. I can produce quite good testimonials. I'm told I make love rather nicely. Though I am at a bit of a disadvantage at the moment. One can't be too convincing at the other end of the table with a bloke looking in the window.
Harriet Vane: I'll take your word for it.
