Dorothy Sayers (1893-1957) was one of the finest mystery writers of the 20th century.
"In the realm of mystery stories there are four books which everyone should read. They are The Lodger, Malice Afore-thought, Bleak House, and The Nine Tailors. I am not sure that but of all these The Nine Tailors is the best."--Sinclair Lewis.
In The Nine Tailors, the plot unfolds largely in and around an old church dating back to the Middle Ages. Change ringing of bells also forms an important part of the novel.
