Trent is unique for his day (early twentieth century) because he is a fallible and very human detective. Narrator Christopher Kay portrays Trent and his supporting characters as appropriate for their time but still realistic and believable for current listeners. Especially enjoyable is Miss Yates, whose nosy observations on her train and ship journeys set the murder investigation, which casts suspicion on Trent himself, in motion. Kay particularly excels as he utters phrases like "his prematurely bald cranium." An excellent choice for nostalgia buffs and those who prefer their mysteries very deliberately unraveled.
