Produktbeschreibung
Lord Peter Wimsey, wealthy, charming and charismatic, is one of the most famous amateur detectives of the golden age of crime. This Macmillan Collector's Library edition of Lord Peter Wimsey Investigates is introduced and edited by crime writer David Stuart Davies.

Part of the Macmillan Collector's Library; a series of stunning, clothbound, pocket-sized classics with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover.

The fifteen short stories in this lively and witty collection, Dorothy L. Sayers's very best, celebrate the breadth of Peter Wimsey's career as London's most celebrated amateur sleuth. From the foppish man about town of 'In the Teeth of the Evidence', to the happily married man in 'The Haunted Policeman', to the father of three in 'Talboys', Wimsey kept that twinkle in his eye and the brilliance of mind that helped him spot a clue a mile off.

Autorenporträt
Sayers, Dorothy L.§
Dorothy Leigh Sayers (1893-1957) was an English crime writer, poet, playwright and essayist. She was awarded a scholarship to Somerville College, Oxford in 1912 and graduated with a degree modern languages and medieval literature with first-class honours, even though women could not be awarded degrees in that period. As a result, she was one of the first women to receive a degree when the law changed in 1920. She is best known for her series of novels featuring English aristocrat and amateur detective Lord Peter Wimsey set between the two World Wars, with books such as Gaudy Night, Murder Must Advertise and Whose Body?

She is also famed for creating the Guinness Toucan advertising slogan and image with artist John Gilroy.
