Sayers All the Lord Peter Wimsey stories are here in this single volume, including one about Harriet, Peter, and their three sons! — It also includes an introduction by James Sandoe, plus two delightful extras -- an essay on Sayers by Carolyn Heilbrun and E.C. Bentley's famous parody "Greedy Night." — The Lord Peter novels, from Whose B... more »ody? to Busman's Honeymoon, have been enchanting readers for many years, because, as The Los Angeles Times has said, "Dorothy L. Sayers is one of the greatest mystery story writers of this century." But the short stories about Lord Peter, which are just as captivating, have always been hard to find.
In this collection you can go the the Egoists' Club (one of the most genial places in London) and hear Peter explain about the curious case of Eric Loder in "The Abominable History of the Man with Copper Fingers," or discover what was going on in the over in "The Vindictive Story of the Footsteps That Ran," or find out how Mr. Grimbold could have been murdered in a house that his butler had so carefully locked and bolted and chained in "Absolutely Elsewhere."
There are twenty-one stories here, twenty-one exciting and absorbing adventures, twenty-one ways to test your own deductive skills in the company of one of the most charming (and elegant) and famous detectives of all time, Lord Peter Wimsey.« less
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.
