A fleeting killer's green mustache. A corpse clutching a note with misplaced vowels. A telephone with the unmistakable ring of death. A hopeful heir's dreams of fortune done in when nature beats him to the punch. A playwright's unwatered-down honor that is thicker than blood.

In each case, the murder baffles the local authorities. For his Lordship and the spirited salesman-sleuth Montague Egg, a corpse is an intriguing invitation to unravel the postmortem puzzles of fascinating falsehoods, mysterious motives and diabolical demises.

About the Author:

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. In 1923 she published her first novel featuring the aristocratic detective Lord Peter Wimsey, who became one of the world's most popular fictional heroes. She died in 1957.

From AudioFile:

Ian Carmichael is a great reader; his sound effects, especially of the dentist's drill, are unforgettable and add a unique element to this collection of seventeen stories. Carmichael is perfect as Lord Peter Wimsey, whom he played on TV, and he performs Montague Egg and the other multitude of characters with rich, successful accents and dialects. He presents the narration consistently and clearly with excellent dramatic pacing. "The Leopard Lady," in which Cyril is so delicately disposed of, and "The Cyprian Cat," in which Mrs. Merridew dies after the Cyprian cat is shot, are excellent examples of Sayers at her best. These classic British detective stories, with a little of the supernatural thrown in, will delight listeners. S.C.A. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
