In In the Teeth of the Evidence, all that was left of the garage was a heap of charred and smouldering beams. In the driving seat of the burnt-out car were the remains of a body.... An accident, said the police. An accident, said the widow. She had been warning her husband about the danger of the car for months. Murder, said the famous detective Lord Peter Wimsey - and proceeded to track down the killer.

New narrator required

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Personally, I'd prefer Ian Carmichael to narrate all Dorothy L Sayers' books, but if that's not possible there must be someone better than Jane McDowell. Her timing is poor and her delivery very stilted, in my view.

Disappointing

Nowhere on the front of this did it say it was short stories. Only one was a Lord Peter. I found it disappointing.

Sold a pig in a poke

This book is advertised as Lord Peter Wimsey but it is a collection of very boring short stories. I didn't enjoy it and feel I was mislead by the blurb Ill be more careful to "google" titles before I buy again
