Peter Wimsey #08: Murder Must Advertise
When Victor Dean dies from a fall down the stairs at Pym's Publicity, a respectable London advertising agency, it looks like an accident.

Recommended by Elizabeth: One of my favorites in the series! Wimsey makes a surprisingly good ad man, and Sayers gently pokes fun at advertising while accurately depicting the maddening vagaries of indecisive clients and rigid deadlines.
