Publisher's Summary

Three of Lord Peter Wimsey's most baffling cases demonstrate his unique detection skills at their most spectacular.

The engima of a house numbered thirteen in a street of even numbers; an indignant child accused of theft; a dream about a game of chess that uncovers the true story behind a violent death. Each of the stories introduces a different side of the twentieth century's most ingenious detective hero.

©1972 The Trustees of Anthony Fleming (deceased) (P)2015 Hodder & Stoughton

Too short

Great stories but Poor value for money because it is too short. Price should be reduced.

Poor Narrator

It's a very good book and I liked the biographical notes but the choice of Jane McDowell as narrator was a mistake. Her reading was stilted and uncomfortable to listen to and it spoiled what would otherwise have been a good book.

Interesting Dorothy L Sayers shorter works despite mispronunciations

Clever cameos but, as often seems to be the case, no guidance to the narrator regarding mispronunciations. “Breedon”, De’Ath” and “Baylee-ol” I think, not Bredon to rhyme with Ned, Death as in dead or Balliol as in ballet. Oxford University will be displeased.

unwanted autobiography

starts at chapter 2 rather had another story, usual wimsey magic but too short, far two few stories of this gentle man, pleased to see the new ones, cleaverly penned in his usual style
