The Torchbearers

by A.J. Hall

The Torchbearers is a novella crossing the worlds of Mary Renault's North Face and The Charioteer with Dorothy L. Sayers' Lord Peter Wimsey stories.

September, 1946. An airman's body washed up on a beach brings Lord Peter and Harriet to Barlock, Somerset. To Lord Peter, the dead pilot represents unfinished business. He is the latest in a series of deaths linked to "X", a shadowy figure who uses his connections within Bridstow's close-knit homosexual community to extort military intelligence from vulnerable men in high-level roles. A chance encounter with an old college acquaintance hands Harriet a loose end which may have the power to unravel all X's intrigues.

For Lilliburlero.
