Publisher's Summary

The best of the golden age crime writers, praised by all the top modern writers in the field including P. D. James and Ruth Rendell, Dorothy L. Sayers created the immortal Lord Peter Wimsey. He made his fifth appearance in this brilliant collection of ingenious short stories.
One solution requires expertise in fine wines; another calls on his knowledge of fine art. Lord Peter has the knack of being on the spot at just the right time to spot a thief or blackmail a blackmailer. Or even prevent a murder... Whatever the occasion, the aristocratic detective uses his razor-sharp mind and unerring instincts to unmask the guilty and go to the aid of their victims.

Narration spoils a good set of short stories

It's a real pity, but despite Jane McDowell's beautiful speaking voice, her really strange emphasis on words rather spoils the reading of this book. I'm hoping it doesn't persist in the longer books because I see they are all read by her. She sometimes gets the emphasis and intonation spot on, but far too often (about half the time) she shortens words that should be elongated, puts an odd emphasis on the wrong word in the sentence, pronounces names such as "Hartman" as two words ("hart" then "man"), or cuts short a word part way through a sentence, so that as a listener you are brought out of the story. This even happens when the narrative actually tells you how the sentence should be read! Really disappointing, particularly given the price.
