Striding Folly: Three Lord Peter Wimsey Mysteries (Lord Peter Wimsey Series)by Dorothy L. Sayers, Ian Carmichael (Narrated by)
In addition to the title story, in which a nightmare may hold a terrifying premonition, this collection includes "The Haunted Policeman," which features a house numbered thirteen on a street of even numbers; and "Talboys," in which one of Lord Peter's own children is accused of theft. Sayers, like Lord Peter, is at the peak of her powers in her final work.
Meet the Author
Although best known for the popular and witty Lord Peter Wimsey mystery series, Dorothy Leigh Sayers (1893¿1957) was also a noted poet, playwright, essayist, and translator. With sly wit, Sayers used Lord Peter Wimsey, an English aristocrat and amateur sleuth, to gently satirize the British class system. She is recognized as being one of the four "Queens of Crime" alongside Agatha Christie, Ngaio Marsh, and Margery Allingham. Some of her most popular books include Whose Body, The Nine Tailors, and The Missing Clock.

This book is only 64 pages long! Counting the tiny little biography at the end. Don't waste your money on it. Talk about a huge regret and I can't be reimbursed! Thanks for even allowing a scam like that.
