"Another perfect stocking stuffer for the person who has everything -- and plans to leave it to you. It's been said that Christmas brings out the best in everyone. This is certainly true of mystery writers, who seem to have been inspired to their best work by the holiday season.
"Come and celebrate. Burn a Yule log with a gang of master detectives: the likes of Nero Wolfe (Christmas Party), Roderick Alleyn (Death on the Air), and Lord Peter Wimsey (The Necklace of Pearls). Share a criminous laugh with Woody Allen and Damon Runyon. And enjoy some surprise appearances by O. Henry, Anton Chekov, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Mary Roberts Rinehart.
Within these covers are stories for every nasty taste: tales of murder, robbery, kidnapping, and espionage. They'll help to make the season bright.
"Merry Christmas. And God help us, every one. "; 6" - 7" Tall

Spine/covers a bit creased, slight shelf wear.

"Murder was hardly the best way for Lord Peter and his bride, the famous mystery writer Harriet Vane, to start their honeymoon. It all began when the former owner of their newly acquired estate was found quite nastily dead in the cellar. And what Lord Peter had hoped would be a very private and romantic stay in the country soon turned into a most baffling case, what with the misspelled "notise" to the milkman and the intriguing condition of the dead man -- not a spot of blood on his smashed skull and not a pence less than 600 pounds in his pocket."; 6" - 7" Tall

Minor edgewear, slight yellowing. A clean, unmarked copy.

His accused murderer was Wimsey's own brother, and if murder set all in the family wasn't enough to boggle the unflappable Lord Wimsey, perhaps a few twists of fate would be . . . a mysterious, vanishing midnight letter from Egypt . . . a grieving fiancee with suitcase in hand . . . and a bullet destined for one, very special Wimsey."; 6" - 7" Tall

Gaudy Night (Lord Peter Wimsey Mystery Ser.), Sayers, Dorothy L.
6 Sayers, Dorothy L. Gaudy Night (Lord Peter Wimsey Mystery Ser.)
London New English Library 1972 Mass Market Paperback Good+ 


Spine somewhat creased, slanted, corners bumped, some edge wear, scuffing esp. along spine. A little yellowing but text is unmarked.

"When Harriet Vane attended the Oxford reunion known as the "Gaudy," the prim academic setting was haunted by a rash of bizarre pranks: scrawled obscenities, burnt effigies, and poison-pen letters -- including one that said, "Ask your boyfriend with the title if he likes arsenic in his soup." Some of the notes threatened murder; all were perfectly ghastly; yet in spite of their scurrilous nature, all were perfectly spelled. And Harriet found herself ensnared in a nightmare of romance and terror, with only the tiniest shreds of clues to challenge her powers of detection, and those of her paramour, Lord Peter Wimsey."; 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall

With the appearance of her dear friend, the incredible Lord Peter Wimsey, she found a reason for detective pursuit -- as only the two could pursue it."; 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall

And then there are the six prime suspects - all of them artists, all of whom wished him dead. Five are red herrings, but one has created a masterpiece of murder that baffles everyone, including Lord Peter Wimsey."; 6" - 7" Tall
