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?

Considered by many to be the first modern mystery novel, Trent's Last Case introduces the gentleman sleuth Philip Trent, a freelance reporter and investigator. Trent becomes involved in the case of the murder of millionaire American financier Sigsbee Manderson, slain while on holiday in England. During the course of his investigation, Trent falls in love with one of the primary suspects. And while he collects evidence and becomes convinced that he has cracked the case, he turns out to be well off the mark

"The murder of a sadistic philanthropist sparks off an elaborate investigation led by artist and amateur criminologist Philip Trent, who had been painting the portrait of the man who was murdered. Two subsequent murders and the disappearance of an actress provide subsidiary mysteries in this inventive tale, which sees Trent in an elaborate maze created by ingenious criminal schemes."--Back cover

Dans une nouvelle traduction, revoici ce roman depuis longtemps épuisé (Nelson, Marabout) qui demeure l'un des chefs-d'oeuvre incontestés du roman policier. Ecrite presque à la suite d'un pari en 1913 et dédiée à Chesterton, cette histoire est très astucieusement et adroitement conduite jusqu'à une fin multiple très audacieuse. A conseiller à toute personne intelligente qui n'a jamais lu en ce domaine

More than somewhat by Damon Runyon( Book )

18 editions published between 1937 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I have made this selection of Damon Runyon's stories with the idea of showing as many aspects as possible of his narrative genius, ranging as they do from the most uproarious farce to such sadness as goes to the depths of the heart. The note of pathos is not often touched, it is true: when it is, it gains force from the contrast with its setting of quaint, unemotional, unconscious cynicism. If, after reading The Lily of St. Pierre in this book you do not agree with that judgment, then-as Runyon's narrator would say-you must be such a guy as will never be moved by anything short of an earthquake
