Book Description
Amusing and absolutely appalling things happen on the way to the gallows when murder meets Lord Peter Wimsey and the delightful working-class sleuth Montague Egg. This sumptuous feast of criminal doings and undoings includes a vintage double identity and a horrid incident of feline assassination that will tease the minds of cat-lovers everywhere. Not to be missed are "The Incredible Elopement of Peter Wimsey" (with a lovely American woman-turned-zombie) and eight more puzzlers penned in inimitable style by the mistress of murder.

"Hangman's Holiday is hardly an occasion for celebration. But what is cause for celebration is this edition of these classic Sayers tales. Amusing and absolutely appalling things happen on the way to the gallows when murder meets Lord Peter Wimsey and Dotothy L. Sayers' delightful working-class sleuth, Montague Egg. They're lucky encounters, indeed, for readers in search of irresistible entertainment."

didn't read; we picked this for a book group selection but didn't realize that it was short stories.
