Trent's Last Case [NEW]
A major international financier is found dead at his Hampshire home. The Record newspaper assigns its leading investigative reporter, Phillip Trent, to the case. In spite of the police cordon, he manages to gain entry to the house by posing as a relative. While there he manages to pick up some of the background to the case from Inspector Murch, the Irish detective leading the investigation. Despite Murch's suggestion that the death is suicide, Trent quickly becomes convinced that it was in fact murder.
Trent's Last Case
Charlie Hudson, an autistic 17-year-old, is determined to leave Sawyer, PA, as soon as she graduates high school - in the meantime, she works as many hours as she can at a sandwich shop called The Triple S to save money for college. But when shop owner Clay Cooper - a man who is both respected and feared by many in this economically depressed community - is found dead, each member of his staff becomes a suspect in the perplexing case. Charlie must work to protect herself and her friends, and uncover the danger that may still be at large in their tightknit community.
The man is arrested and proven guilty. A few months later Trent delves into a case again, this time investigating as a freelance reporter. The newspaper editor who hires him butters him up when urging Trent to take the job:
Never anything but oblivious to his own views, Trent hones in on a suspect and proceeds methodically to build a case against him. He pieces together his solution using logic and the evidence available. He marshals the clues in a coherent fashion. The reader is as sure as he is that he has the right man.
Major international financier Sigsbee Manderson is found dead at his Hampshire home. The Record newspaper assigns its leading investigative reporter, Phillip Trent, to the case. In spite of the police cordon, he manages to gain entry to the house by posing as a relative.
Many of the activities will take place in the new DNA Building that opened at Trent in October 2006. This state-of-the-art facility features an automation lab for DNA processing, forensic teaching labs, and specialized equipment for the preparation and analysis of genetic material. This is the same technology used by Trent researchers last year when handling evidence from real cases involving illegally imported products from endangered species, such as caviar from threatened sturgeon from the Caspian Sea and monkey skin rugs from Ethiopia. 041b061a72
