Radio Detective Story Hour Episode 155 – Trent’s Last Case

E.C. Bentley

E.C. Bentley

This week you’ll hear from a detective who is not well known, yet, the novel on which it is based is considered very influential to the modern detective story. E.C. Bentley originally wrote his novel, Trent’s Last Case, on a challenge from his life-long friend, G.K. Chesterton. Bentley wrote this after becoming exasperated with the “perfection” Conan Doyle built into his detective, Sherlock Holmes. Bentley’s Trent is more human like the rest of us and makes mistakes.

This episode is from Suspense and is a satisfactory, though not perfect adaptation of the novel.
