Paperback, Virago Modern Classics, 416 pages. A Pin to See the Peepshow. A Pin to see the Peepshow was first published in 1934 and f Over on the Librarything Virago group – one of my favourite places on the internet to hang out – there has been quite a bit of talk about this book over the summer. It just happened I think that several people read it at around the same time. The response to it has been particularly good with people saying it is one of their favourite Virago books.

I love mystery books and read all of Dorothy Sayers mystery series more than thirty years ago. I recently read a biography of
Ms Sayers and learned that she considered "A Pin to See the Peepshow" the perfect mystery novel, and strived to make her
own writings at the same level.

This book is a beautiful character study of the thoughts and flaws we all have, and there is no indication that a murder is going to happen, and when it does, we suddenly get a reality picture of the criminal justice system and a wake-up call of the mores and flaws of society in dealing with abortion, murder and punishment.

I agree with Dorothy Sayers. Not only is this the perfect mystery novel, but also a thought-provoking check on how society
deals with justice and punishment.

The novel may soften the representation of the murder in the Thompson-Bywaters case it was based on but otherwise closely tracks Young's Notable British Trials account. Young too thought Mrs. Thompson innocent. What the novel most brilliantly does is show how its protagonist is executed not for murder but adultery and not so much even for adultery as for being a middle class adulteress, upper class adultery being quietly fashionable, and lower class unnoticed. Tennyson shows her character as a human sacrifice to the hypocrisies of the class system.
