This compilation of the short stories Sayers wrote throughout the years starring Lord Peter is fun, witty, varied and fabulous. Not one bad story in the lot. Yes some have a more thief/murderer to catch feel but most of them are delightful and give an insight to the character of Lord Peter in many different points in his life. I adored "The Learned Adventure of the Dragon's Head", found "The Undignified Melodrama of the Bone of Contention" amusing and fun; all of them have something different to offer. The last two short stories are set after Harriet comes into Lord Peter's life, it gave me a hint of what's to come in the future books I still have to read. Tall Boys the last one features Lord Peter, his older son Bredon and how very much alike they are. I just loved this compilation. I took my time reading it because I wanted it to last forever and have another story to read.
