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 the Paperback edition.

A stylish, complex story with plenty of surprises.
And a brilliant sleuth who still has plenty to learn--and learns much of it.
The story keeps getting richer and funnier all the way to the end.
(The Kindle version is great.)
One slight warning -- this is an old book, with old-fashioned lavender prose, and a couple of the off-hand racist remarks that were common back in the day.
