E. C. Bentley
E. C. Bentley (1875-1956) was an English humorist and author of mysteries. His best-known work is Trent's Last Case (1913), a comic mystery inspired by Bentley's frustration with the airtight solutions of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories. A landmark work, Trent's Last Case has been called the dawn of crime fiction's Golden Age.
