The Nine Tailors by Dorothy L. Sayers

The Nine Tailors

by Dorothy L. Sayers

Publication: Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1944, New York

Later U. S. edition. Originally published in 1934. A Wartime book. Offsetting to front and rear endpapers, else a near fine, clean, tight copy in dust jacket lightly sunned on the spine, lightly soiled on the white rear cover, and light wear to the spine ends. One of the best of the Lord Peter Wimsey mystery stories in which he must find an illusive murderer. The ancient church and bells of the Fenchurch St. Paul play the leading part, and the book is steeped in the atmosphere of that strange, flat fen-country of East Anglia, fitting for a tale that begins with an unknown corpse in a quiet country churchyard.
