Trent's Last Case (Popular Penguins Crime)
|Author:||E. Clerihew Bentley|
|Series:||Green Popular Penguins|
When a scheming American capitalist is found dead in the garden of his English country house, two immediate matters confound amateur detective Philip Trent: why is the dead man not wearing his false teeth, and why is his young widow seemingly relieved at his death? The newly widowed Mabel Manderson - 'the lady in black' - has a disarming effect on the refreshingly fallible and imaginative Trent, in this classic detective story that twists and turns with ingenious deductions and misplaced assumptions.
