Corners bumped, slight edge wear and rubbing. An attractive copy. ; Lord Peter Wimsey; 6¾" - 7¾" Tall; 356 pages;

"When adman Victor Dean falls down the stairs in the offices of Pym's Publicity, a respectable London advertising agency, it looks like an accident. Then Lord Peter Wimsey is called in and soon discovers that there's more to copy-writing than meets the eye. A bit of cocaine, a hint of blackmail, and some wanton women can be read between the lines. And then there is the brutal succession of murders, five of them, each one a fixed fee for advertising a deadly secret." .

Synopsis

Murder Must Advertise is a Lord Peter Wimsey mystery novel by Dorothy L. Sayers, published in 1933. Most of the action takes place in an advertising agency, a setting with which Sayers was very familiar. One of her advertising colleagues, Bobby Bevan, was the inspiration for the character Mr Ingleby.
