Editorial Reviews

Review

“D. L. Sayers is one of the best.” —The Daily Telegraph
 
“The special qualities of Dorothy Sayers’ writing are seen here at their best.” —Saturday Review
 
“Like a chess problem . . . none of the rules of detective-story writing is broken, and the book may be recommended to those who take detective stories seriously.” —The Times Literary Supplement

About the Author

Dorothy L. Sayers (1893–1957) was a British playwright, scholar, and acclaimed author of mysteries, best known for her books starring the gentleman sleuth Lord Peter Wimsey. While working as an advertising copywriter, Sayers began writing Whose Body? (1923), the first Wimsey mystery, followed by ten sequels and several short stories. Sayers set the Wimsey novels between the two World Wars, giving them a realistic tone by incorporating details from contemporary issues such as advertising, women’s education, and veterans’ health. Sayers also wrote theological essays and criticism during and after World War II, and in 1949 published the first volume of a translation of Dante’s Divine Comedy. Although she considered this translation to be her best work, it is for her elegantly constructed detective fiction that Sayers remains best remembered.
