This was not my main complaint however, but rather the title states "(Lord Peter Wimsey Mystery)" when it was not one mystery at all but a mishmash of sketchy short stories, most of which don't even feature Wimsey at all.
This is considerable misrepresentation in my view, and had I realised the true content, I wouldn't have bought this particular title.
"The Image in the Mirror"
"The Incredible Elopement of Lord Peter Wimsey"
"The Queen's Square"
"The Necklace of Pearls"
"The Poisoned Dow '08"
"Sleuths on the Scent"
"Murder in the Morning"
"One too Many"
"Murder at Pentecost"
"The Man Who Knew How"
"The Fountain Plays"
It may be my perception but the mysteries get better and more intriguing as the next one appears. Then it is over.
I will not pull the stories apart as the fun is letting them unfold. If you like other Sayers' writings you will like this collection of short stories.
If you're looking to introduce someone to Lord Peter or perhaps dip your toe in yourself, this is a place to start. These are a dozen short stories -- four featuring Lord Peter, six with Montague Egg, her other detective, and two stand-alones without either detective. Don't try to solve the mystery -- Sayers doesn't necessarily play fair with her clues in this format -- but enjoy the writing style that is very much tied to its time and place, where how the characters present themselves is a major part of the fun.
