Reviews of Nine Tailors, the (1934)
Review by spiphany (2004-07-10)
I donít read mysteries as a rule (canít handle the suspense) but I picked this up without realizing it was one and by the time I knew, I was completely drawn in by Sayersí rich, descriptive writing. Her portrayal of the East Anglia fen country is very real, and the world of bell-ringing holds an esoteric fascination. I love the way Sayers gradually pulls together all the threads of the story, the way all the elements of setting and plot and characters work together. And of course the bells play a crucial role in the solution to the mystery.
