Typical Sayers: an effete detective goes about in odd circumstances solving mysteries based on what must appear (to the characters) to be obscure clues. Fun reading.

This selection of short stories are a "fascinating peek into the 1920"s British high-society!" The plots are mostly "high-brow" and often quite technical, like challenging little puzzles, but always entertaining. If you are a fan of British mysteries, you will love this collection!

This is an excellent welcome to Lord Peter and his exploits. Lord Peter is a necessary read for every mystery lover out there. From here you'll want to buy all the Lord Peter books you can find. This book is a treasure of short stories.

This is the complete Lord Peter Wimsey stories: all twelve from Lord Peter Views the Body, the three from Striding Folly, four from Hangman's Holiday, and two from In the Teeth of the Evidence. The best of these come from the first dozen, but all are entertaining as she buffoons British manners and solves the most baffling perplexities (not all are murders). Step aside Agatha, Ellery, and Erle, Ms Sayers is truly the reigning queen of mystery.
