free download è eBook or Kindle ePUB æ Dorothy L. Sayers review The Lord Peter Wimsey Mysteries Ö eBook or Kindle ePUB A special three in one edition of Dorothy Sayers’s acclaimed Lord Peter Wimsey mystery series books one through threeIn  Whose Body Lord Peter Wimsey spends his days tracking down rare books and his nights hunting killers Though the Great War has left his nerves frayed with shellshock Wimsey continues to be London’s greatest sleuth and he’s about to encounter his oddest case yet A strange corpse has appeared in a suburban architect’s bathroom stark naked save for an incongruous pince nez When Wimsey arrives on the scene he is confronted with a once in a lifetime puzzle The police suspect that the bathtub’s owner is the murderer but Wimsey’s investigation uickly r. NOTE While this collection covers the first three Wimsey novels this review is exclusively for the third Unnatural DeathIf Clouds of Witness presented a tragic situation that it tried to make comic even going so far as to end in the possibility of a future marriage Unnatural Death goes the other way It starts with that mots benign of detective story openers the detective happening to overhear a fellow patron at a bar with some problem they cannot figure out themselves But when Lord Peter Wimsey begins to investigate what looks to be a diverting uestion of inheritance and a missing person in inadvertently inspires another murder and then the bodies start falling in earnestIn a modern detective novel the resulting tale would almost feel like an indictment of Wimsey s habit of sticking his nose in other people s business this being a traditional story it turns out his skills are necessary to solve the case and it maybe turns out that he wasn t to blame for the initial death after all Ah well Unnatural Death was published in 1927 meaning audiences wouldn t have to wait long for true subversions of the detective novel to appear in print And as an example of the impossible murder case where people keep dying off with what looks like natural causes but feels like murder it works wellOf the many things Sayers does well in these novels the one most worth noting is how the discovery of the culprit rarely ends the novel Rather than taking the criminal s capture for granted Lord Peter and Mr Parker must go through the logistics of successfully hunting them down a process which is far involved and gruesome here than in many other detective novelsOne thing Sayers does here that has aged rather poorly and which I cannot discuss without getting into serious major book breaking DO NOT READ PAST THIS IF YOU DON T WANT IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE MURDERER REVEALED type spoilers is her novel s treatment of the eventual culprit which might well be one of the first examples of the murderous lesbian trope and is certainly the earliest I have come across It s never overtly described as such but the stereotypes are all there right down to one of the lesbians attempting ot seduce and murder Lord Peter in a seuence so absurd that I d rather it had been played for laughs than for the bathetic scene it becomesBut even here Sayers is doing something that she seems to return to in later stories and novels using the detective story to explore the lives of people who are overlooked by society such as old women who stay unmarried and occasionally move in together Unnatural Death s most entertaining character is another such woman an old Catholic spinster named Miss Climpson who Lord Peter regularly employs for reconnaissance because after all who better to find out everything about everyone than an old woman who likes to know all the local gossip Just as the murderers are overlooked by the police the same way they are overlooked by society Miss Climpson proves a fearfully good detective because her position causes everyone to look on her as a harmless old gossip Like Miss Climpson Sayers does sometimes appear a little old fashioned in her opinions But like Miss Climpson this does not prevent her from having a clear eyed understanding of how the world works

Reasonably fun uick reads although unfortunately in some respects I m afraid haven t aged all that well The first and third books in this collection contain some mild tinges of antisemitism and racism Also the Kindle edition features a number of typos and formatting errors maybe down to OCR gone awry
