Synopsis:
The title refers to the nine strokes of a church bell to announce the death of a man. In this adaptation of
Dorothy L. Sayers's intricate, nostalgic, and atmospheric novel of the same name, Lord Peter Wimsey, stranded
in a New-Year's Eve snowstorm ca. 1930 in the fens of eastern England, becomes the guest of a local clergyman,
an adept enthusiast of the esoteric, mathematical art of change-ringing the eight swinging bells of his magnificent
medieval church. Wimsey is pressed into service to assist with a heroic and historic all-night peal to welcome the
new year. A few months later the vicar, having learned of Wimsey's reputation as a sleuth, summons him back to the
village to investigate a mysterious body newly discovered in the churchyard, an unknown man secretly buried, who
had apparently died about the time of Wimsey's first visit. A much earlier jewel robbery, details of church
architecture, unclaimed letters from a French farm, and peculiarities of canon law are only a few of the further
pieces of the puzzle which Wimsey must put together.
