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.

Too short

Great stories but Poor value for money because it is too short. Price should be reduced.

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.

unwanted autobiography

starts at chapter 2 rather had another story, usual wimsey magic but too short, far two few stories of this gentle man, pleased to see the new ones, cleaverly penned in his usual style
