Written in 1912 as a light-hearted 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.

When a powerful and ruthless American millionaire is found murdered in his English country garden, Philip Trent—English painter, poetry lover, and amateur detective—delves into the crime. He successively uncovers three different, plausible solutions to the murder, and in the process, comes face to face with his own fallibility, in detection and in romance.

    " Well written, compelling, and an unanticipated ending. What could be better? LIstened to this audio book while on our vacation in England, so the British accents of the audio were an added bonus. "

    " Extremely entertaining English murder mystery. I discovered this book while reading "Reading Lolita in Tehran". This is one of the books that Azar Nafisi purchased in Tehran before they closed the English book stores. "

    " For once the blurbs were right - a great, classic mystery. It has an adorable detective and a twisted yet totally believeable plot. The fact that it was written in 1913 or so means it's written in a charmingly old fashion way. "
