Fiction. Mystery. HTML:

An irresistible collection of "truly remarkable" stories from the master of classic mysteries, featuring Lord Peter Wimsey and Montague Egg (The New York Times).

Most noblemen would prefer to avoid a charred corpse in a garage. But Lord Peter Wimsey has never seen such a body, and cannot resist the opportunity when it comes along. The corpse is burned beyond recognition, but the watch it wears remains pristine??stopped precisely at seven minutes past nine.

These are the sorts of clues that great murder cases are built around, and few detectives are more adept at finding them than Wimsey, the famous creation of Dorothy L. Sayers. In this volume, two classic Wimsey stories appear alongside five starring Montague Egg, an eccentric wine salesman whose powers of deduction could give His Lordship a run for his money. A handful of other glittering puzzles round out the volume, serving as testament to Sayers's enduring status as a star of crime fiction.
In the Teeth of the Evidence is the 14th book in the Lord Peter Wimsey Mysteries, but you may enjoy the series by reading the books in any order.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Dorothy L. Sayers including rare images from the Marion E. Wade Center at Wheaton College.… (mais)

In The Teeth of the Evidence by Dorothy Sayers is a collection of short stories with the first two featuring Lord Peter Wimsey. The next five have Montague Egg as the main character and then the remaining stories are stand-alones. Although at first I was disappointed that Wimsey wasn’t featured in more stories, I did enjoy this collection.

I usually find crime stories don’t succeed as short stories but Sayers has used her intelligence and wit to come up some original ideas. This is the second collection of short stories by Dorothy Sayers that I have read that have featured the endearing Montague Egg, a travelling salesman who has had quite a bit of success in solving mysteries. The stand-alones were more of a mixed bag but some stood out to me, in particular “Milk Bottles” and “The Inspiration of Mr. Budd”.

As with most short story collections, In the Teeth of the Evidence is a mixed bag. Some stories are superior but overall Sayer’s fine writing, pacing and characterizations make this an interesting collection. ( )

This collection of short stories features 2 Lord Peter Wimsey stories, 5 Montague Egg ones and 10 others. Montague Egg is an amateur sleuth like Wimsey, and the stories are typical detective stories. However, the others are an interesting mix, mostly mystery but some with supernatural and/or horror elements. ( )

This collection of Sayers short stories includes two stories featuring her famous detective Lord Peter Wimsey, five stories featuring traveling salesman Montague Egg, plus several other stories. Sayers is better at plotting than at character development, and this is especially true of her short fiction. I read the stories over the course of a month, and at the end of the month the most memorable stories for me were the Montague Egg story “Dirt Cheap” and “The Inspiration of Mr. Budd,” about an unassuming London barber who may have a wanted criminal for a customer.

A disappointing collection of short stories from Dorothy L. Sayers. While a couple of the mysteries involve Lord Peter, the majority feature Montague Egg, another detective, or no detective at all. Maybe I'm just burned out on short stories at the moment, but I really did not enjoy this collection. The ones featuring Wimsey and Egg seem more developed than the rest, perhaps because readers of previous Sayers works know these detectives. ( )

Dorothy L. Sayers really was a master at the suspense/mystery kind of novel and she doesn't disappoint when using the short story format either. This book is a collection of short stories, roughly a third each of Lord Peter Wimsey, Monty Egg and other short stories.

To be fair, I am not a huge fan of the short story format for mysteries since they lack the room necessary for red herrings and wild goose chases, but she still composed excellent novels. I liked the Egg and Wimsey ones best, but some of the rest I will probably remember the longest. Creepy....

With Mr. Benton supporting the grisly patient, and Mr. Lamplough manipulating the drill, the filling of one of the molars was speedily drilled out, and Mr. Lamplough said: "Oh, gosh!" - which, as Lord Peter remarked, just showed you what a dentist meant when he said "Ah!"
