Lord Peter Wimsey is a famous literary detective, created by Dorothy Sayers, oxford scholar and friend of men like Charles Williams and C. S. Lewis. The first book about Lord Peter, entitled Whose Body?, was published in 1923, and he went on to be the hero of 10 more novels and several collections of short stories (now assembled into one volume titled Lord Peter).

In Strong Poison (1931), Lord Peter meets Harriet and falls in love with her. Harriet is a cerebral, Oxford-educated mystery writer on trial for the murder of her former lover. Needless to say, Wimsey saves her from the gallows, and after many proposals of marriage throughout Strong Poison and Have His Carcase, Vane finally accepts Peter's proposal in Gaudy Night. The couple marry, and end up spending their honeymoon solving yet another mystery in Busman's Honeymoon.
