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.More

Excellent reader and very good story. I had not read any of his books before but would like to now.
Unexpected twists and turns. Beautifully read.
The end. It was very surprising and satisfying .
First chapter is slow but stick with it! From chapter 2 it is totally gripping!
