“French once more felt baffled. Again in this exasperating case he was left at a loose end. The information he gained always seemed to fail him at the critical moment.”

Charles Gething, head clerk at Duke and Peabody diamond merchants in Hatton Garden is found murdered in front of the firm’s open safe. Inspector French is assigned the case, which he works on slowly and meticulously, through a series of fascinating clues, which also take him to Holland, France and Spain and abroad. A highly entertaining, classic British mystery story.

Unlike contemporary trends with bumbling police and the amateur detective genius, Crofts opts for the classic police procedural technique with Inspector French, a first-class investigator in Scotland Yard.

Considered one of Freeman Wills Croft’s best works, Inspector Frenchs Greatest Case – the first in the long-running series featuring French – is a masterpiece of detective fiction.
