One of the true Grand Dames of the mystery genre, Dorothy Sayers first gave us Lord Peter Wimsey in 1923 with the publication of her debut novel Whose Body? Over the next 20 years, more novels about the aristocratic amateur sleuth appeared, as did 21 short stories, each one as cunningly written as the next. All of his short stories are collected in this treasury, from "The Abominable History of the Man with Copper Fingers" and "The Fantastic Horror of the Cat in the Bag" to "The Image in the Mirror" and "Talboys." This is Lord Peter at his best, and a true testament to the art of detective fiction.
"What could be of greater joy to Wimsey fanciers than this volume of all the short stories about him? ... Every one a model of style, pure detection, and character-and-background delight ... rich and glorious."—SFExaminer-Chronicle
