This biography of the novelist Dorothy Leigh Sayers - the creator of Lord Peter Wimsey and the bestselling author of a dozen detective novels - brings out the spiritual pilgrimage and struggle at the heart of Sayers' life story. The author, who draws on thousands of letters Sayers wrote, reveals her to be a complex woman. Sayers was a very private person who even hid the existence of an illegitimate child from her closest friends. She was also someone to whom faith was central and wrote many theological books as well as the famous detective novels. Her radio play on the life of Christ, "The Man Born to be King", caused a furore when it was first broadcast and went on to win acclaim. She was linked with the Inklings - the group of writers which included C.S. Lewis, Charles Williams, J.R.R. Tolkien and others.

This biography of the mystery novelist, Dante translator and Christian writer uses letters not seen before, which flesh out and unify Sayers's life and work. The production values do not pass muster. The sound ebbs and flows from tape to tape, and extraneous noises go unedited. The narrator's voice seems alternately shrill and muffled. The production problems are a significant drawback in an otherwise excellent addition to one's biographical audio section. E.F. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
