Unfortunately, Lord Peter appears in only two stories in this collection by Dorothy Sayers: "In the Teeth of the Evidence" and "Absolutely Elsewhere," unless you count the teaser for "Striding Folly."
Five of the other stories ("A Shot at Goal," "Dirt Cheap," "Bitter Almonds," "False Weight," and "The Professor’s Manuscript") feature Montague Egg, a travelling salesman for an importer and distributor of fine wines and spirits. He is fond of quoting maxims from "The Salesman's Handbook" and quite frankly, lacks Lord Peter's sparkle and wit.
The rest of the short stories are a miscellaneous collection of mysteries, featuring no one in particular. They are: "The Milk-Bottles Dilemma," "An Arrow O’er the House," "Scrawns,""Nebuchadnezzar," "The Inspiration of Mr Budd," "Blood Sacrifice," "Suspicion," "The Leopard Lady," and "The Cyprian Cat."
All of the stories are well-written, some with a twist at the end, but I was hoping for more Whimsey.
This book also contains a preview of "Striding Folly" with Lord Peter at his most whimsical after the birth of his son, and a biography of Dorothy L. Sayers.
