In the meantime, Lord Wimsey has gotten married and all of the action takes place on the night of and the days following his wedding, at the country home he has let for the honeymoon because it was a childhood favorite of his new bride when she was growing up in the area. And of course in the meantime are the literary asides and references that Wimsey, his wife, and the local police chief trade with rapid-fire speed.
The journey and the companions are the destination here, as the mystery and the eventual resolution are straightforward stuff when Sayers gets around to it. But the waiting is worth the waiting for.
