Dorothy L. Sayers
Dorothy L. Sayers crept into the world of detective fiction, imbuing life into one of history’s most popular stars of investigative literature. Her character Lord Peter Wimsey bursts onto the scene in Sayers’ 1923 debut novel, ‘Whose Body?’ with his famous introductory line - ‘Oh, damn!’ Now you can discover this whimsical and unique character in a collection of audiobooks available as MP3 downloads or on CD.
Born in 1893, Sayers was a prominent crime writer, poet and playwright, best known for her mysteries. She was a woman with many interests, which shines through in her multi-layered narratives.
Take, for example, ‘The Unpleasantness at the Bellona Club’ which explores the troubles of World War I veterans when a General dies under suspicious circumstances. Sayers also wrote about controversial themes of the times, such as the encouragement of women’s education in the 1935 mystery novel, ‘Gaudy Night’ and addressed the ethics of advertising when a copywriter’s death comes into serious question in ‘Murder Must Advertise’.
This MP3 and CD audiobook collection contains both adapted readings and full-cast BBC Drama productions, starring the charisma of Ian Carmichael as Lord Peter Wimsey, Patricia Routledge as his mother and Sarah Badel as the stubborn Harriet Vane. Whether you’re a life-long fan or are just discovering this gem of the crime genre, you now have the option to enjoy Sayers’ gripping tales in the format of your choice.
