Inspector French's Greatest Case

(1924)
(The first book in the Inspector French series)
A novel by

 
Considered one of Freeman Wills Crofts&#146; best works, Inspector French&#146;s Greatest Case is an out-of-print masterpiece of detective fiction. It was first published in 1924. It was selected by Howard Haycraft to be one of the works included in the ultimate mystery list: The Haycraft-Queen Definitive Library of Detective-Crime-Mystery Fiction, Two Centuries of Cornerstones 1748-1948.

Unlike other mystery writers who have made the police appear to be incompetent, Crofts has given us the brilliant Inspector French, a first class investigator, albeit within the ranks of Scotland Yard. Charles Gething, head clerk at London&#146;s Duke and Peabody&#146;s, diamond merchants, is found murdered in front of the firm&#146;s open safe. Inspector French is assigned the case, which he works on methodically, through a series of fascinating clues, in England and abroad. Crofts rewards us with a highly entertaining, thoroughly satisfying, classic British mystery story.
