Paula Cappa | 64 comments At Reading Fiction Blog, there are lots of FREE short stories to read: mysteries, thrillers, crime, ghost stories too.

This week: The Unsolved Puzzle of the Man With No Face.

When was the last time you read an English murder mystery, a jazzy little puzzle, in the suspense style of Agatha Christie?

Reading Fiction Blog has a short story, FREE, to go with your lunchtime reading. "The Unsolved Puzzle of the Man With No Face" by Dorothy Sayers. A Lord Peter Wimsey Mystery.

Joyce Carol Oates praised author Dorothy Sayers in the NY Times: Lord Peter is a tour de force, superior to the tricky plots his creator has stuck him in; unlike most series detectives in what might be called the crossword-puzzle mode, of which Sayers is a master."

Stop by Reading Fiction for a free read.

Curious title for a short story, right? It's a little psychological twisty story. The woman who wrote this story was the first woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for fiction.
Do you know her?
