What do the first weekends of summer and classic British mystery writer Dorothy Sayers have in common? Reading, or in my case re-reading, In the Teeth of the Evidence makes a perfect transition from frantic spring gardening and those end of semester meetings to a different world, and the slower pace, of summer. Who wouldn’t want a virtual trip to an English country house, especially if there were a few mysterious murders to solve? Originally published in 1939, these short stories feature Lord Peter Wimsey, one of the great Golden Age detectives. Partnering with working-class Montague Egg they sort out crimes up and down the class structure of England.
It is truly relaxing to know that there are answers to even the most baffling questions. Happy summer!
