A trove of short stories featuring two of the Jazz Age’s most famous sleuths 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. In this collection of stories, the two detectives confront cat killers, American zombies, and—most horrible of all—a poisoned bottle of fine old port. Several decades after their first publication, mystery maven Dorothy L. Sayers’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.… (mais)

This is a collection of mystery short stories, including 4 featuring lord Peter Wimsey. Dorothy Sayers is a master of this genre, and you can only wonder what we would have been given had she not decided to do other things.

The short stories are not quite as intriguing as longer novels as the author moves very quickly from problem description to problem explanation but there is still that gap that allows the reader to make their own guess. ( )

This collection featured Lord Peter Wimsey, Montague "Monty" Egg, and a couple of miscellaneous stories written by Sayers. The Lord Peter stories were the longer ones, but the Montague Egg stories, while predictable, were enjoyable. I enjoyed the two miscellaneous stories at the end. A brief biography of Sayers plus photos appears after a preview of the next book in the Lord Peter series. ( )

2020 reread was via audiobook narrated by Ian Carmichael. This collection of short stories contains:

Lord Peter Wimsey stories:
"The Image in the Mirror"
"The Incredible Elopement of Lord Peter Wimsey"
"The Queen's Square"
"The Necklace of Pearls"
Montague Egg stories:
"The Poisoned Dow '08"
"Sleuths on the Scent"
"Murder in the Morning"
"One Too Many"
"Murder at Pentecost"
"Maher-Shalal-Hashbaz"
Other stories:
"The Man Who Knew How"
"The Fountain Plays"

As much as I enjoyed the Lord Peter stories, in this reread I found that the Montague Egg stories appealed to me most. Good mysteries plus the humor of Egg's aphorisms :) ( )

This collection has two types of stories: Lord Peter Wimsey ones and Montague Egg ones. On the upside, the Lord Peter stories have great characters and witty banter, so they are fun to read even though their plots are a bit stupid or dull. On the other hand, the Montague Egg stories have mind-numbingly stupid and dull pts, so not even a witty character with good dialogue manages to save them. ( )

I feel sure that I've read some of these short stories before. Some of them are quite good but others seem to have very little substance. book says Peter Wimsey short stories but actually there only a few Wimsey ones, then some Montague Egg, and then two not connected to any specific detective. I was rather disappointed. The stories felt like early work of Sayers, and not up to the quality of the Wimsey novels. ( )

The little man with the cow-lick seemed so absorbed in the book that Wimsey had not the heart to claim his property, but, drawing up the other arm-chair and placing his drink within easy reach, did his best to entertain himself with the Dunlop Book, which graced, as usual, one of the tables in the lounge.
