The Nine Tailors: A Lord Peter Mystery

$7.99$1.99
Critics have argued that this mystery–set in 1934 England–is the greatest detective novel ever written. I’m not the judge of that, but I do know that Sayers’s mystery novels keep me turning the page until way past my bedtime. The Nine Tailors is one of the 11 Lord Peter novels and the one Nancy Pearl recommends you start with. More info →

Lord Peter Books

Sayers is one of the greatest mystery writers of the 20th century, and many of her mysteries center around Lord Peter Wimsey--the aristocratic detective who loves expensive clothes, fine wine, and British wit. There are 11 novels featuring Lord Peter, and several short story collections, but they need not be read in order. The first is Whose Body? (published 1923), in which Lord Peter investigates a naked dead body found in the bath, wearing nothing but a pair of pince-nez. My favorite is Gaudy Night (published 1935), a psychological thriller set at Oxford that features female protagonist Harriet Vane. Sayers is a mystery writer, but she approaches her topic delicately: though many of her novels feature murder plots, they’re not at all graphic. More info →

I'm a big fan of this series; they can be read in any order. The Chicago Tribune says, "The Wimsey books are literate and delightful mysteries." and Saturday Review calls them "the very last word in sophisticated murdering." From the publisher: "In the annals of mystery writing, Lord Peter Wimsey and Montague Egg are among the most memorable detectives. Lord Peter—noble by birth, brilliant by nature—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." More info →
