Discover Dorothy L. Sayers' inimitable Golden Age detective in this newly published collection of the complete Lord Peter Wimsey stories.

Presented in chronological order, these short stories see Lord Peter Wimsey bringing his trademark wit and unique detection skills to all manner of mysteries. From poisoned port to murder in fancy dress, Wimsey draws on his many skills - including his expertise in fine wine and appreciation of fine art - to solve cases far and wide, some even taking him to foreign countries and unexpected hiding places in pursuit of miscreants and murderers.

Containing 21 stories taken from Lord Peter Views the Body, Hangman's Holiday, In the Teeth of the Evidence and Striding Folly, now published together for the first time in one volume, this is the ultimate collection for fans of classic detective fiction and Dorothy L. Sayers.

'She brought to the detective novel originality, intelligence, energy and wit.' P. D. James

MEDIA REVIEWS
Be warned . . . once you make friends with Wimsey you'll want to get better acquainted -- Christopher Fowler * from introduction to Lord Peter Views the Body *
The books chronicling Wimsey's adventures remain models of their kind -- Barry Forshaw * from introduction to Five Red Herrings *
In time of dire and immediate trouble, on might well call upon a Sherlock Holmes for a quick solution to one's trials. But for the balm that reassures one about surviving the vicissitudes of life, one could do no better than to anchor onto a Lord Peter Wimsey. -- Elisabeth George * from introduction to In the Teeth of the Evidence *
