Dorthy L. Sayers was one of the Queens of Crime whose work reflects the golden age of mystery novels. Her first novel, Whose Body, was published in 1923 and introduced Lord Peter Wimsey. Lord Peter is the hero of fourteen books.
I read all the Sayers novels when I was in college (not for college, just at that time) and recently decided that a re-reading was called for. Lord Peter, and the novels that feature him, are clever and dry and just when you know where you are headed they shift a bit and take you somewhere else.
So far I have re-read Whose Body, Clouds of Witness, and Unnatural Death. I didn't review the last one because all I really had to say about it was Wow! Dorthy Sayers!
