Bentley, E. C.: Trent's Last Case. v1. 9 May 07
An Urbane, witty, humorous detective/newspaper reporter, one who is often wrong in his deductions....
Here's what one source writes:
"This classic murder mystery is pure English delight...This, the author's first, was written in 1912 and still is fascinating today. Trent, a freelance reporter and investigator who has given up his detective work, is lured back by his editor to investigate the mysterious death of a wealthy English baron.
Another source: "Written in reaction against the solemnity of the Sherlock Holmes stories, Trent's Last Case, with its ingeniously twisting plot and cheerfully self-mocking hero, is the first classic of the golden age of English detective fiction."
Plot: "A powerful and ruthless American capitalist is found dead in the garden of his English country house. But why is he not wearing his false teeth? Why is his young widow so relieved at his death? The artist and amateur detective Philip Trent arrives to find that there is more to the case than the solving of a puzzle: he must also accept his own fallibility, in detection and in romance. The only edition available in print, Trent's Last Case is the prototype of the modern detective novel."
PLEASE: If you find errors, let me know and I'll do my best to correct them.
