Lord Peter Wimsey series

18 works, 15 primary works

Lord Peter Bredon Wimsey is a bon vivant sleuth in a series of detective novels and short stories by Dorothy L. Sayers, in which he solves mysteries — usually but not always murders.

The novels are set in Britain contemporaneously with when they were written, from the early 1920s to the late 1930s; Sayers returned to Wimsey was the 1942 short story "Talboys."

See also Jill Paton Walsh's continuation of the series.
