Whose Body?

by Dorothy L. Sayers

Dorothy L. Sayers was and remains one of the best examples of the mystery writing genre. Though on the surface, her Lord Peter Whimsey mysteries seem like frivolous "parlor whodunnits", there is a deeper undercurrent of social context in her work, hidden under a lighthearted charade in the same way that Lord Peter hides the darker side of himself behind his foppish demeanor. Readers will fall in love with Lord Peter's wit and his vulnerability.

This is the first of the Lord Peter mysteries, and one of the better ones (in my opinion), though it's also one of the more easily solved. Even so, I highly, highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good mystery!

I would love to see the other Lord Peter books here, as well!
