Publisher's Summary

Twelve stories from the celebrated author of one of the most famous mystery classics ever written, Trent's Last Case.

Philip Trent is an artist, a journalist and an urbane unraveller of highly problematical crimes. Here the unshakable sleuth appears in 12 tales of misadventure, where the crimes that he investigates range from fraud and embezzlement to criminal assault and murder, yet they all succumb to his adept methods - even if the criminal sometimes escapes.

Trent Intervenes affirms Bentley's reputation as an author of the first rank and displays his ability to write equally well in the short story form.

Critic Reviews

"To say that Trent in small pieces is as excellent as Trent entire is recommendation enough." (Saturday Review of Literature)
"A collection of twelve stories, each and all worthy of your attention." (New York Herald Tribune Books)

Quite good

Short stories nicely constructed and mostly well narrated if one overlooks the female voices which don’t really work. Otherwise interesting tales that engage the listeners interest. I would happily hear more.

Classic Mystery

Good old fashioned short mystery stories. If you like listening to the classics, you'll enjoy this book. (Dorothy L Sayers, Agatha Christie, Ngaio Marsh, etc)
