9781572702233: Striding Folly (Mystery Masters)

These three short stories display the talents of Dorothy L. Sayers and those of her irrepressible detective, Lord Peter Wimsey, to the best effect. The enigma of a house numbered thirteen in a street of even numbers, something nasty in the furnace-room, and a dream about a game of chess. From each of these disturbing puzzles, Wimsey slowly but surely extracts a number of vital clues.

About the Author:

Dorothy L. Sayers (1923-1957) was an English-born author of novels, short stories, poetry, essays, reviews, and translations. She is best known for her detective fiction, considered among the classics of the genre, and for her amateur detective character, Lord Peter Wimsey.

From AudioFile:

This collection of Dorothy Sayers stories delivers the essence of her exasperatingly aristocratic, yet immensely able and likable detective, Lord Peter Wimsey. More fanciful whimsy has seldom been created than the quipping sleuth, and hearing Ian Carmichael's portrayal is to experience the absolute, giddy truth of Wimsey. While nobly rendering all members of Wimsey's world, Carmichael's Lord Peter is imbued with a vivid essence near impossible to catch through mere reading of written word. The final story, "Talboys," exercises Lord Wimsey's detecting ability in defense of his young son, accused of petty theft. It is an especially sparkling gem of wit and mischievousness, mirroring father and son, only enhanced by the talent of Ian Carmichael. P.H.M.
