WHEN A CHURCH ARCHITECT finds a naked man in his Battersea bathroom, Lord Peter Wimsey is on the case! The aristocratic amateur detective, accompanied by his camera-bearing manservant Bunter, follows a trail of blood as he pursues stock market manipulation, medical malpractice and Lord Brocklebury's edition of Dante. But the curious case of the bathing body turns darker and deadlier as Lord Peter uncovers a ghastly crime.
