The Nine Tailors is Dorothy L. Sayers's finest mystery, featuring Lord Peter Whimsey, and a classic of the genre.

 

The nine tellerstrokes from the belfry of an ancient country church toll out the death of an unknown man and call the famous Lord Peter Whimsey to investigate the good and evil that lurks in every person. Steeped in the atmosphere of a quiet parish in the strange, flat fen-country of East Anglia, this is a tale of suspense, character, and mood by an author critics and readers rate as one of the great masters of the mystery novel.

About the Author:
Dorothy L. Sayers is the author of many novels, short stories, and essays, as well as the editor of many more volumes, but she will forever be remembered for creating the brilliant, idiosyncratic Lord Peter Wimsey. Sayers was widely hailed for taking the novel of detection to new heights of literary and popular achievement, but, much to the frustration of her fans, wrote only eleven books featuring Lord Peter. Sayers died in Essex, England, in 1957.
 
From AudioFile:
Ian Carmichael personified Lord Peter Wimsey for a generation of public television viewers. His affection for the brainy, finicky, aristocratic detective is clear in this reading. In addition to creating a well-drawn Wimsey, he imbues solid Bunter with the humor and patience that Sayers blended into his personality. All the other characters in this tale of countryside bell ringing gone wrong are so perfectly vivid that listeners may find themselves chortling with pleasure as they listen. The only quibble is that Carmichael's reading voice is the same as the one he gives to Lord Peter, leading to some confusion between the narrative and the dialogue spoken by Wimsey. But no matter, this is still a long evening's pleasure. A.C.S. AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright AudioFile, Portland, Maine
