Product description

Review

One of the seminal novels of the mystery genre.

-- "New York Times"

"One of the three best detective stories ever written."

-- "Agatha Christie"

The finest detective story of modern times.

-- "G. K. Chesterton"

It is the one detective story of the present century which I am certain will go down to posterity as a classic. It is a masterpiece.

-- "Dorothy L. Sayers" --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

From the Back Cover

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? The artist and amateur detective Philip Trent arrives to find that there is more to the case than the solving of a puzzle: he must also accept his own fallibility, in detection and in romance. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
