Home Dorothy L. Sayers The Documents in the Case. In Dorothy L. Sayers’ novels, I found the sort of main character I loved when I turned to fiction: someone with a ‘real’ life, someone who wasn’t just a hero who conveniently had no relations to mess up the workings of the novelist’s plot. Dorothy L. Sayers, as I discovered, had much to teach me both as a reader and as a future novelist. While many detective novelists from the Golden Age of mystery kept their plots pared down to the requisite crime, suspects, clues, and red herrings, Sayers did not limit herself to so limited a canvas in her work.

Documents in the Case is unlike Sayers' other mysteries. com User, September 5, 1998. This book was the first I have read by Dorothy Sayers, and it was very good. It is in the form, first of all, of documents: letters, newspaper clippings, etc. Secondly, it does not feature Lord Peter Wimsey. It is, however, an intensely interesting book. There were times when it was a little slow, but other than that, it was very well-written. I look forward to reading more mysteries by this author!

I read this before, many years ago, and am looking forward to reading it again. Great characters, plenty of humor, interesting approach to telling a story. And nobody's better than Sayers at constructing a mystery plot.

Although not was well-known as the Lord Peter Wimsey novels, this book hold up very well. It is, as the name implies, told exclusively through documents, mostly letters and other reports. At the end, there is no doubt as to who committed the murder, but the ethical resolution is left tantalizingly open.

Book was in great shape! The text itself is not what I was expecting, but it was still interesting to read.

I am a great fan of Sayers so it grieves me to say that I found this book a bit tedious and convoluted.

What can I say, I love the Wimsey stories. Whenever I get a chance to read one that is new to me, I buy it. Can't even find them in our library anymore. I don't know of any current authors who can hold a candle to this one. Still a bestseller to me.

This book gives you an insightful peek inside the minds of a husband and a discontented wife who are do not understand each other. It helps you see how you can read people wrong, and feel sure you know a thing when it is just untrue and unfair. Also some interesting scientific points that support that point toward Creation, rather than evolution so far as I can see. It is written in the form of letters from the various people involved. It is a mystery without Lord Peter Wimsey, and not so funny, but, as I said, insightful. It's only drawback is that it is rather awful to hear the thoughts inside of the mind of an adulteress.
Great old-timey book with all the odd language traits of early 20th century England. Good plot and story. I recommend it
