Inhalt

Alongside Agatha Christie, Margery Allingham and Josephine Tey, Dorothy L. Sayers was one of the key figures – and greatest innovators – in golden age crime fiction. As well as her famous novels, she was a prolific and accomplished short story writer. This Folio collection brings together stories featuring her most celebrated character, Lord Peter Wimsey – aristocrat, amateur sleuth and fashionable man about town. Introduced by Jill Paton Walsh, illustrated by Paul Cox. 

 

Appearing in 12 novels of his own, Wimsey is one of the most popular fictional detectives of the 20th century, and the adventures collected here admirably illustrate the range of delights golden-age crime can offer, from the morbidly gruesome to the satisfyingly meticulous. In ‘The Man with the Copper Fingers’ a beautiful statue hides a very grisly secret, a crossword puzzle (complete with answers at the back of the book) provides the solution to ‘The Fascinating Problem of Uncle Meleager’s Will’, while a chance act of violence in ‘The Vindictive Story of the Footsteps that Ran’ leads to Wimsey seeking clues in a bowl of dripping.
