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.

About the Author

Dorothy L. Sayers is the author of many novels, short stories, and essays, as well as the editor of many more volumes, but she will forever be remembered for creating the brilliant, idiosyncratic Lord Peter Wimsey. Sayers was widely hailed for taking the novel of detection to new heights of literary and popular achievement, but, much to the frustration of her fans, wrote only eleven books featuring Lord Peter. Sayers died in Essex, England, in 1957.
