Dorothy Sayers was a pioneer in the world of detective fiction, and in her second novel featuring Lord Peter Wimsey, she deepens her craft. In his first outing in Whose Body, Wimsey verges on caricature, and in Clouds of Witness, he’s drawn as more of a man of action. Sayers will deepen this aspect of Wimsey in subsequent novels. 

The title for this book comes from the Bible: Hebrews Chapter 12, verse 1: "Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us." 

And now, Clouds of Witness, Part 1 of 9, by Dorothy Sayers.
