This collection of Dorothy Sayers stories delivers the essence of her exasperatingly aristocratic, yet immensely able and likable detective, Lord Peter Wimsey. More fanciful whimsy has seldom been created than the quipping sleuth, and hearing Ian Carmichael's portrayal is to experience the absolute, giddy truth of Wimsey. While nobly rendering all members of Wimsey's world, Carmichael's Lord Peter is imbued with a vivid essence near impossible to catch through mere reading of written word. The final story, "Talboys," exercises Lord Wimsey's detecting ability in defense of his young son, accused of petty theft. It is an especially sparkling gem of wit and mischievousness, mirroring father and son, only enhanced by the talent of Ian Carmichael. P.H.M.
