A must-read for fans of Agatha Christie's Poirot and Margery Allingham's Campion Mysteries, Lord Peter Wimsey is the immortal amateur sleuth created by Dorothy L Sayers. Lord Peter Wimsey bent down over General Fentiman and drew the Morning Post gently away from the gnarled old hands. Then, with a quick jerk, he lifted the quiet figure. It came up all of a piece, stiff as a wooden doll ...But how did the general die? Who was the mysterious Mr X who fled when he was wanted for questioning? And which of the general's heirs, both members of the Bellona Club, is lying?

Dorothy L Sayers was born in Oxford in 1893, and was both a classical scholar and a graduate in modern languages. As well as her popular Lord Peter Wimsey series, she wrote several religious plays, but considered her translations of Dante's Divina Commedia to be her best work. She died in 1957.From AudioFile:
No one has mastered the snappy comeback like Lord Peter Wimsey. It's worth reading a Dorothy Sayers mystery just to hear what the silver-tongued sleuth will come out with next. In this adventure, 90-year-old General Fentiman is found dead in a wing chair at his London club. But how long has he been stiff under that newspaper? The timing means half a million pounds to someone. Ian Carmichael is Peter Wimsey. With perfect timing and vocal inflection, he ekes every bit of humor out of Wimsey that is possible to get while still maintaining the detective's effete, ever so aristocratic intelligence. While doing a dandy job with all the rest of the characters, it's really Peter and the faithful Bunter who shine here. D.G. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
