9780060808389: In the Teeth of the Evidence

Serial murder baffles local authorities, but for the ever-unshakable Lord Peter and the working-class sleuth Montague Egg, the killings are intriguing invitations to unravel postmortem puzzles, fascinating falsehoods, mysterious motives, and diabolical demises. Originally published in 1940.

About the Author:

Dorothy L Sayers was born in Oxford in 1893, and was both a classical scholar and a graduate in modern languages. As well as her popular Lord Peter Wimsey series, she wrote several religious plays, but considered her translations of Dante's Divina Commedia to be her best work. She died in 1957.www.sayers.org.uk

From AudioFile:

Ian Carmichael is a great reader; his sound effects, especially of the dentist's drill, are unforgettable and add a unique element to this collection of seventeen stories. Carmichael is perfect as Lord Peter Wimsey, whom he played on TV, and he performs Montague Egg and the other multitude of characters with rich, successful accents and dialects. He presents the narration consistently and clearly with excellent dramatic pacing. "The Leopard Lady," in which Cyril is so delicately disposed of, and "The Cyprian Cat," in which Mrs. Merridew dies after the Cyprian cat is shot, are excellent examples of Sayers at her best. These classic British detective stories, with a little of the supernatural thrown in, will delight listeners. S.C.A. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
