Summary

Three of Lord Peter Wimsey's most baffling cases demonstrate his unique detection skills at their most spectacular.

The engima of a house numbered thirteen in a street of even numbers; an indignant child accused of theft; a dream about a game of chess that uncovers the true story behind a violent death. Each of the stories introduces a different side of the twentieth century's most ingenious detective hero.

Poor Narrator

It's a very good book and I liked the biographical notes but the choice of Jane McDowell as narrator was a mistake. Her reading was stilted and uncomfortable to listen to and it spoiled what would otherwise have been a good book.
