Anthony Trent, Master Criminal (Anthony Trent 1) Publisher's Summary

"Anthony Trent, Master Criminal" (1918) is a novel by Wyndham Martyn.

Conington Warren, one of the most popular men in society, member of the desirable clubs, millionaire owner of thoroughbreds was victim of a burglary of ten thousand dollars' worth of valuables. His flawless butler seems to be deceived by the crook, since Warren was at a dinner while the butler thought he was smoking in the library. The crook looked like a gentleman who might belong to Warren's clubs, and spoke like one, and had a handwriting exactly like Warren.

Anthony Trent likes subtlety in crime. For him the kings of crime are "men who are clever enough to protect themselves from the police. Men who play the game as a good chess player does against a poorer one, with the certainty of being a move ahead."

    "The Secret of the Silver Car" (1922) is a novel by Wyndham Martyn, in which Trent, the master criminal solves a case as a detective. Excerpt: "Stop him," the second officer yelled, "he's going to jump overboard!" The man who dashed past him and through a group of passengers waving hands at friends on the deck below, was too quick for those who sought to stay him. He balanced himself for a moment on the rail and then jumped ten feet down to the pier. The gangplanks had already been withdrawn and the great liner bound for New York was too mighty a piece of momentum to pause now.
