D. L. Sayers is one of the best detective story writers. (E. C. Bentley Daily Telegraph)
I admire her novels ... she has great fertility of invention, ingenuity and a wonderful eye for detail. (Ruth Rendell)
She combined literary prose with powerful suspense, and it takes a rare talent to achieve that. A truly great storyteller (Minette Walters)

Montague Egg, with his rhyming couplets, sunny temperament and excellent powers of observation, is a marvellous character. I always wish when I read stories about him that Dorothy L Sayers had given him a book to himself. I loved the way he helps a girl rescue her cat in 'Mahar-shalal-hashbaz' and the ingenious murder in the same story.
The last two stories in the collection are ingenious and I particularly enjoyed the neat twist in 'The Man Who Knew How'. This is an excellent and varied collection of crime short stories and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys short stories as well as fans of DLS.
"The Image in the Mirror"
"The Incredible Elopement of Lord Peter Wimsey"
"The Queen's Square"
"The Necklace of Pearls"
"The Poisoned Dow '08"
"Sleuths on the Scent"
"Murder in the Morning"
"One too Many"
"Murder at Pentecost"
"The Man Who Knew How"
"The Fountain Plays"
It may be my perception but the mysteries get better and more intriguing as the next one appears. Then it is over.
I will not pull the stories apart as the fun is letting them unfold. If you like other Sayers' writings you will like this collection of short stories.
