Performance fantastic as always. Buyer beware: this collection of short stories contain only two featuring Lord Peter, and these showcase the most omniscient and unrealistic facets of the character. Good for completists, newbies to the author should look to other works.

I am a fan of Dorothy L. Sayers, and always enjoy her writing. However, these stories are not all Lord Peter Wimsey stories, as I assumed from the title. The reader is a woman and her voice fails to convey who is speaking. It is hard to hear the difference between what Lord Peter or Montague Egg is saying and the other characters. Each sentence has the same inflection and spoils this collection of stories because I am constantly wondering which character is saying what. It is rather disconcerting to hear the male characters (with hardly any female characters as well) with a decidedly feminine voice.
