I love Dorothy Sayers and I have made it my business to read all her books (especially her Lord Peter stories) This was absolutely charming!

Sayers sets the standard
Dorothy Sayers sets the standard for intriguing mystery served up with literary grace, moral compass, and British wit. Underneath the effortless writing style is the mind of a Christian theologian, who believes that murders should be solved not to exercise the ennui or psychological compulsions of the detective, but rather to protect society by defending the value of the life of the individual. Decent society was never so enjoyable. Suitable for reading in refined sips -- if you can keep from gulping it in all at once!
