Trent, Derek. Derek Trent was created by Charles Rodda (Professor Bastion, Professor Bisley, Bobseen, Joel Saber) and appeared in eight stories in Flynn’s Weekly in 1924 and 1925, beginning with “Spell of the Dagger” (Flynn’s Weekly, Nov. 1, 1924).

Derek Trent is a Great Detective. He is active in New York and is a piano player. He is assisted by his friend, Edward Santry, a lawyer as dim as Dr. Watson. Trent’s opponents are more outré than Holmes’, ranging from voodoo priests to Yellow Perils to hundred-foot-long snakes.
