If Orczy cops flak for being anti-Semitic, then Sayers DEFINITELY should too in that horridly patronising condescending sort of way that pretends it's not racist.
You might be interested in the discussion of Whose Body? which was the last selection of the old Mobile Read Book Club, exactly a year ago in January 2018. We discussed antisemitism at length.
