Paperback
Dorothy L Sayers’ amateur sleuth returns in this collection of three stories, featuring a brand new introduction. A must-read for fans of the inimitable Lord Peter Wimsey, as well Agatha Christie’s Poirot and Margery Allingham’s Campion Mysteries.

‘D. L. Sayers is one of the best detective story writers’ Daily Telegraph

Three of Lord Peter Wimsey’s most baffling cases demonstrate his unique detection skills at their most spectacular . . .

The engima of a house numbered thirteen in a street of even numbers; an indignant child accused of theft, a dream about a game of chess that uncovers the true story behind a violent death.

Each of the stories introduces a different side of the twentieth century’s most ingenious detective hero, and this book also features a biographical essay by Janet Hitchman, Sayers’ first biographer.

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