Book Review: The Nine Tailors by Dorothy L. Sayers

First book of 2014.  

The Nine TailorsThe Nine Tailors by Dorothy L. Sayers

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Library.

Perhaps it was Christmas, perhaps it was my own busyness, but I thought Parts I and II dragged a bit.  I kept checking page numbers; sighed that part of the mystery was - once again - who the corpse belonged to (I did figure it out before it was revealed); and was wondering about Sayers' story.

Then, the mysteries unraveled and it turned beautiful.  My friend pointed out a quote from early in the book that tied the whole thing together, "Where there is a church, there is civilization." 

So, after dragging, the final flourish makes me love it.
