Hangman's Holiday

ebook

Lord Peter Wimsey and Montague Egg confront menaces from purloined pearls to poisoned port in tales from "one of the greatest mystery story writers" (Los Angeles Times).
In the annals of mystery writing, Lord Peter Wimsey and Montague Egg are among the most memorable detectives. Lord Peter—noble by birth, brilliant by nature—is a fly in the ointment of criminals across Britain, turning up whenever the police ask him to lend his quick wit and keen eye to an investigation. Montague Egg is a free-spirited figure, a traveling wine salesman with an unfortunate habit of stumbling over murder scenes. Both are inimitably charming, and neither has ever failed to catch his man.

In this collection of stories featuring the two detectives, plus a couple of bonus tales, the mystery maven's evocation of England between the wars—and her chilling puzzles—remain as engaging as ever.
Hangman's Holiday is the 9th book in the Lord Peter Wimsey Mysteries, but you may enjoy the series by reading the books in any order.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Dorothy L. Sayers including rare images from the Marion E. Wade Center at Wheaton College.
