The Triumphs of Eugene Valmont

A rarely republished tale from the 1887-1914 era of Gaslight Crime, in which many of the greatest characters and conceits of the British crime genre first appeared. The Triumphs of Eugene Valmont: originally published in 1906, the Scottish-born author Robert Barr (1849-1912) began his career as a journalist. In 1892 he was the co-founder, with Jerome K. Jerome, of 'The Idler' and a friend - and early parodist - of Conan Doyle. A lively collection of 10 stories about a French detective - M. Valmont - resident in London. Whether dealing with a gang of anarchists in ‘The Siamese Twin of a Bomb-Thrower’ or flirting with the supernatural in ‘The Ghost with the Club-Foot’, the resourceful M. Valmont rarely loses his sang-froid. He may not always catch the criminal but Valmont is one of the most successful of the Edwardian era’s many rivals to Sherlock Holmes.
