Trent’s Last Case

Trent’s Last Case by E. C. Bentley (Nelson, 1913); audiobook read by Steven Crossley (HarperCollins, 2017) A cultivated, rather loquacious narrative, pleasant enough to read and certainly ingenious, though Trent is cloyingly self-absorbed and everything rests upon a glossed-over mis-assignation of the time of death. (The motivation for removing Manderson’s false teeth also bears up poorly under scrutiny.)
