Dorothy L. Sayers

Her wry crime fiction features upper-crust investigator Lord Peter Wimsey.

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.
