Episode Summary

Have His Carcase, Part 1
Harriet Vane, staying by the sea to work on her latest book, finds the body of a man on the beach, with his throat cut - blood is still flowing from him, and a razor is lying nearby. With the tide coming in, Harriet gathers evidence and takes it to the police. Wimsey reads the story in the papers and comes quickly - to help with the mystery and also to pursue Harriet. The dead man was a Russian refugee, working as a ballroom dancing partner, who had just become engaged to a rich Englishwoman, and the local police decide he killed himself. Harriet believes he was murdered and sets out with Wimsey to prove it. They have to crack a coded message to find the killer.moreless
