  • Clouds of Witness (Lord Peter Wimsey, 2) by Dorothy L. Sayers



Clouds of Witness is a 1926 mystery novel by Dorothy L. Sayers , the second in her series featuring Lord Peter Wimsey .

Wimsey arrives to investigate, along with his friend Inspector Charles Parker - who finds himself becoming increasingly attracted to Lady Mary throughout the novel. They find a series of unidentified footprints and a discarded jewel in the form of a cat. It is clear that both Denver and Mary are hiding something: Denver refuses to budge from his story that he was simply out for a walk, while Mary is faking illness to avoid talking to anyone.

Wimsey investigates several false leads. The footprints turn out to be those of Mary's undisclosed real fiancé, Goyles, a socialist agitator considered "an unsuitable match" by her family. He had secretly entered the grounds for a pre-arranged rendezvous at 3 am, when the couple had intended to elope. Mary assumed that he was the killer and had been covering for him, but when it transpires he had fled in fear after discovering the body she breaks off their engagement in disgust at his cowardliness.
