Synopsis

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. When his sexton finds a corpse in the wrong grave, the rector of Fenchurch St Paul asks Lord Peter Wimsey to find out who the dead man was and how he came to be there. The lore of bell-ringing and a brilliantly-evoked village in the remote fens of East Anglia are the unforgettable background to a story of an old unsolved crime and its violent unravelling twenty years later.

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.

Author Choice

Dorothy L Sayers made important contributions to the art of detective fiction: an original detective in Lord Peter Wimsey, scrupulous attention to details of the plot, settings which immediately come alive and books which can be read as literature as well as ingenious puzzles. 'The Nine Tailors' brilliantly evokes a world which has long passed away, the life of a remote Fen village and its splendid and historic church. The Nine Tailors, which also makes use of Sayers’s interest in campanology, is regarded as one of her most distinguished novels as well as being an international favourite.
