Society's eligible women are in mourning. Lord Peter Wimsey has married at last, having finally succeeded in his ardent pursuit of the lovely mystery novelist Harriet Vane. The two depart for a tranquil honeymoon in a country farmhouse, but find, instead of a well-prepared love nest, the place left in a shambles by the previous owner. His sudden appearance, dead from a broken skull in the cellar, only prompts more questions. Why would anyone have wanted to kill old Mr. Noakes? What dark secrets had he to hide? The honeymoon is over, as Lord Peter and Harriet Vane start their investigations. Suspicion is rife and everyone seems to have something to hide, from the local constable to the housekeeper. Wimsey and his wife can think of plenty of theories, but it s not until they discover a vital fact that the identity of the murderer becomes clear.

Professional reviews

"Ian Carmichael plays Lord Peter Wimsey in this radio adaptation of Sayers's final detective novel. When Lord Peter purchases a country house for himself and his wife, Harriet Vane, he doesn't plan on the death of the former owner or the bank's repossession of all the house's furnishings. As with all BBC Radio dramatizations, BUSMAN'S HONEYMOON is a cleverly plotted movie for the ears, animated by action, witty dialogue, and lively performances. Sarah Badel plays Harriet Vane, but the dialogue between the two characters comes across as stiff, lacking the warmth one would expect from a pair of newlyweds. Peter Jones plays the even-tempered valet, Bunter, and Rosemary Leach gives a gifted performance as the nosy housekeeper, Mrs. Ruddle. S.E.S. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
