The Best Crime Stories Ever Told
Offers a collection of over thirty stories from the 1920s and 1930s, originally chosen by Sayers, a leading expert and connoisseur in the field of mystery literature. In this title, the authors include Edgar Allan Poe, H G Wells, Wilkie Collins, Stephen Crane, and J S Le Fanu.
Dorothy Sayers was born in Oxford to Reverend Henry Sayers. She grew up to major in modern languages and then work in publishing and later as a copywriter. She published her debut novel,
Whose Body? in 1923, and it became the first of her fourteen-part mystery series. After first creating a play based on her mystery series, she began writing more plays, including
The Man to Be Born King, which faced much opposition for having the character of Christ speak in modern English. Sayers passed away in England in 1956.
