Three of Lord Peter Wimsey’s most baffling cases demonstrate his unique
detection skills at their most spectacular.
The engima of a house numbered thirteen in a street of even numbers; an
indignant child accused of theft, a dream about a game of chess that uncovers
the true story behind a violent death. Each of the stories introduces a different
side of the twentieth century’s most ingenious detective hero.
This book also features a biographical essay by Janet Hitchman, Sayers’ first
‘I admire her novels … she has great fertility of invention, ingenuity and a wonderful
eye for detail’ P. D. James
