The Jazz Age: the height of fashion, of opulence and excess. In the Roaring Twenties high living was King and low cunning was Queen. Amidst the art deco and cocktails, diabolical masterminds plotted, schemed and murdered their way to untold fortunes ... and standing in their way was the dapper, monocled Lord Peter Wimsey, the quintessentially English gentleman detective. With the aid of his manservant Bunter and Scotland YardGÇÖs Inspector Charles GÇ£Parker BirdGÇ¥ Parker, Lord Peter risks life and limb to thwart fiendish plots as they investigate cases littered with red herrings and corpses at the heart of the idle rich. In The Nine Tailors, Lord Peter Wimsey was on the case when Lady WilbrathamGÇÖs stolen emerald necklace was swiped at the wedding of Charles ThorpeGÇÖs son. The culprits were captured thanks to WimseyGÇÖs brilliant detection, but the jewels whereabouts remained a mystery and were never recovered. Years later, Wimsey gets a second chance to solve the case when a mutilated corpse is discovered in the grave of Lady Thorpe, providing fresh clues to the missing emeralds. British cinematic legend Ian Carmichael is joined by an all-star cast as Dorothy L SayersGÇÖ urbane, fiercely intelligent detective and his rich, often murderous world of high society is brought to life in the complete first series of colourful and authentic 1920s whodunits.
