Since I adore all of Dorothy L. Sayers' Wimsey stories, this is an auto-five star for me, but the new digital releases from Open Road Media deserve the rating as well. The transfers are clean, crisp and not riddled with typos -- and the cover design for the series works very well.

If you're looking to introduce someone to Lord Peter or perhaps dip your toe in yourself, this is a place to start. These are a dozen short stories -- four featuring Lord Peter, six with Montague Egg, her other detective, and two stand-alones without either detective. Don't try to solve the mystery -- Sayers doesn't necessarily play fair with her clues in this format -- but enjoy the writing style that is very much tied to its time and place, where how the characters present themselves is a major part of the fun.
Pretty good collection of stories - some Lord Peter Wimsey, some Montague Egg, and some standalones. They're a little more digestible than some of the novels, with the Montague Egg ones starting out light and taking darker turns.

Only warning is that if you already have A Treasury of Sayers Stories, don't buy this - stories are repeated.

If you don't own that one, however, and like Sayers - don't pass this up.
Lord Peter Wimsey uses deduction and tricks to figure out each case. I love this series. He keeps his ideas to himself until he has worked it out in his mind. He has his houseman and can use his clout with the police to help him.He's brilliant and has his own ideas of justice. I always enjoy reading figuring right along with Peter.
After a 30-some year break, I've gone back to re-read all the Sayers' Whimsey novels straight through. They are still fun as period pieces, but in terms of character evolution are much more complex and subtle than I remembered. I have enjoyed how Sayers, in the 1920s, sorts out relationships between the sexes and deals with changing class relationships in England in that time. Her prose is also a delight.
The Lord Wimsey series is so enjoyable! The mysteries are great but it is the characters that really make me want to read more!
I thought I'd read all of the Sayers books, but not so. A delightful find and a wonderful read!

Enjoyed getting to know other Sayer's characters besides Lord Peter Wimsey: i.e. Montague Egg. Sayers comments on business sales is priceless. It reminds me of the text book of Gregg's Shorthand used in government schools at one time.
While Dorothy Sayers is a top notch writer over all, no doubt about that, these short stories don't allow for much character development and are by their nature rather rushed through.

This was not my main complaint however, but rather the title states "(Lord Peter Wimsey Mystery)" when it was not one mystery at all but a mishmash of sketchy short stories, most of which don't even feature Wimsey at all.

This is considerable misrepresentation in my view, and had I realised the true content, I wouldn't have bought this particular title.
