A trove of short stories featuring two of the Jazz Age & rsquo;s most famous sleuths In the annals of mystery writing, Lord Peter Wimsey and Montague Egg are among the most memorable detectives. Lord Peter & mdash;noble by birth, brilliant by nature & mdash;is a fly in the ointment of criminals across Britain, turning up whenever the police ask him to lend his quick wit and keen eye to an investigation. Montague Egg is a free-spirited figure, a traveling wine salesman with an unfortunate habit of stumbling over murder scenes. Both are inimitably charming, and neither has ever failed to catch his man. In this collection of stories, the two detectives confront cat killers, American zombies, and & mdash;most horrible of all & mdash;a poisoned bottle of fine old port. Several decades after their first publication, mystery maven Dorothy L. Sayers & rsquo;s chilling puzzles remain as engaging as ever. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Dorothy L. Sayers including rare images from the Marion E. Wade Center at Wheaton College.
