Dorothy L. Sayers was born in 1893. She was one of the first women to be awarded a degree by Oxford University, and later she became a copywriter at an ad agency.

From AudioFile:

This delightful production is a perfect introduction to theworld of Lord Peter Wimsey, one of the world's foremost fictionaldetectives. Listeners, who may be familiar with Carmichael's smoothportrayal of Lord Peter from PBS's "Mystery," will equally enjoy hisadept and vivid characterizations of the other characters, includingBunter, Inspector Parker, and Sir Impy Biggs. Lord Peter returns froma vacation to investigate a murder on his own doorstep: His brother,the Duke of Denver, has been arrested for the murder of his sisterMary's fiancé. The unabridged presentation does justice to amultilayered, complex story line and will give listeners a chance tobe reintroduced to one of the earliest appearances of this elegant,classic character.
