The 1920s and 30s were a golden age for detective fiction. Many popular writers from the era have passed into obscurity, but one in particular is still loved and praised by writers, critics and aficionados of the genre: Dorothy L. Sayers. She wrote ingenious whodunits that were also satisfying and intelligent novels. Her prose is elegant and expressive; her settings, whether a Scottish fishing community or the clubs and drawing-rooms of Mayfair, are vividly realised, and her characters are flesh-and-blood human beings most memorably her hero, Lord Peter Wimsey. Debonair and fabulously rich, yet suffering from shell shock from his time in the First World War and tortured by his conscience, Wimsey is one of the most charismatic fictional detectives ever created. 'A respectable Battersea architect has discovered a dead man in his bath.' 'Indeed, my lord? That's very gratifying.'
