Staff Reviews


I first met Lord Peter Wimsey on a train (or rather, in an anthology of train-related murder mysteries), and pretty much instantly fell in love. Here are the collected short adventures of my new imaginary 1920's detective boyfriend.

— Kate


All the Lord Peter Wimsey stories are here, in a single volume, including the one about Harriet, Peter and their three sons!

About the Author

Dorothy L. Sayers was born in 1893. She was one of the first women to be awarded a degree by Oxford University, and later she became a copywriter at an ad agency. In 1923 she published her first novel featuring the aristocratic detective Lord Peter Wimsey, who became one of the world's most popular fictional heroes. She died in 1957.

Praise For…

“She brought to the detective novel originality, intelligence and wit. She gave it a new style and a new direction, and she did more than almost any other writer of her age to make the genre intellectually respectable.”
— P.D. James

“What could be of greater joy to Wimsey fanciers than this volume of all the short stories about him?”
— San Francisco Examiner Chronicle

“A classic collection from ‘one of the greatest mystery-story writers of the [twentieth] century’”
