Eugène Valmont: his triumphs
Author: Robert Barr
ISBN: 0 86025 289 2
Format: Paperback
£9.95

Valmont was forced to leave the Surèté after a disagreement with his superiors over a case (which he did solve, although the thief and the stolen jewels vanished) and came to London to set up as a Consulting Detective in 1893.

There he unravelled an Italian murderer’s crime, he sorted out a social theft, he traced a missing inheritance, and overcame the confusion over a series of forgetful collectors. With true Gallic humility he reveals how he would have become the pre-eminent detective in late Victorian London – with a bit of extra luck!
