But for the balm that reassures one about surviving the vicissitudes of life, one could do no better than to anchor onto a Lord Peter Wimsey. -- Elisabeth George * from introduction to In the Teeth of the Evidence * The books chronicling Wimsey's adventures remain models of their kind -- Barry Forshaw * from introduction to Five Red Herrings * Be warned . . . once you make friends with Wimsey you'll want to get better acquainted -- Christopher Fowler * from introduction to Lord Peter Views the Body *
