Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Nine Tailors is Dorothy L. Sayers's finest mystery, featuring Lord Peter Whimsey, and a classic of the genre.

 

The nine tellerstrokes from the belfry of an ancient country church toll out the death of an unknown man and call the famous Lord Peter Whimsey to investigate the good and evil that lurks in every person. Steeped in the atmosphere of a quiet parish in the strange, flat fen-country of East Anglia, this is a tale of suspense, character, and mood by an author critics and readers rate as one of the great masters of the mystery novel.

Gypsi, June 6, 2010 (view all comments by Gypsi)
This is certainly one of Sayers' best novels. The plot is detailed and realistic and the characters equally so. Lord Peter is at his most charming and observant.

The book centers around a church and it's bell ringers. The chapters begin with quotes about bell ringing, which give it a wonderful flavor.

If you only read one Lord Peter novel, make it this one!
