Short stories can be so hit or miss. It all depends on how quickly the author can get into the story and grab your attention and then come to a satisfying resolution. Dorothy Sayers succeeded with this much to my satisfaction.

The book is classic Sayers -- beautifully written with her customary attention to detail and description. If only the worker bees who converted the original format to Kindle were as diligent! I see a comment from 2012 pointing out the conversion errors -- and here we are in 2018, and the Kindle version is still bedeviled by problems.

I read a contemporary criticism of Dorothy Sayers that faulted her for not being realistic, as realism was the literary fashion at that time. I'm glad she wasn't. Lord Peter's world is a charming escape. The characters are dependable and well-rounded; not complex but definitely dimensional and always entertaining. This is a collection of short stories, and some are better than others. If you're a fan of Sayers and Lord Peter, you'll enjoy it.

Dorothy L. Sayers is a genius. And Lord Peter is the epitome of eloquence and detective finesse. Sherlock Holmes and Lord Peter Wimsey are the two best literary detectives you could ever have the pleasure of reading.
This book--the fourth in the Lord Peter mystery series--is a tad different than the others; the first three are novels, as are the following, but this is a collection of short Lord Peter mysteries. And let me tell you; it is delightful. I would encourage you to read the other mysteries first, so you know the background behind the characters, et cetera, but this is a wonderful introduction to Lord Peter--the most whimsical Wimsey ever!

Sayers' reputation, and her noble sleuth, have both long outlived her, and for a very good reason: they are intriguing, intricate mysteries. This book is a collection of her short stories concerning Lord Peter Wimsey. They are all set in the interwar period, the 1920s and 30s. So, old-fashioned, you betcha, but I can think of any number of reasons to read her books. The foremost one is quite simple: she's an excellent writer.

I am reading all of the Lord Peter books in the order written. I just love Dorothy L Sayers' writing. These books make me feel like I know Lord Peter and his associates. Treat yourself and read these books! You'll thank me for it.

I like all types of mysteries. I particularly enjoy mysteries from before I was born: Dorothy Sayers, Agatha Christie, Rex Stout, Dashiell Hammet, Raymond Chandler, Ellery Queen. I love the language and how the stories are constructed. They also paint a picture of life in different eras, places and different kinds of people.

I prefer Sayers' writing style to Agatha Christie's style. While they both have interesting plots, Sayers is just more enjoyable in my opinion. I especially enjoy the character Lord Peter. I don't usually enjoy short stories, but being familiar with the character, I actually did like this set of stories.
Although these short stories are classic Dorothy Sayers and among my favorites, as with many Kindle versions of classic books, there are innumerable errors of spelling, changes of words, letters that have been translated into other letters.
