Trent, Philip. Philip Trent was created by E.C. Bentley and appeared in six stories, three novels and story collections, and three movies from 1912 to 1938, beginning with Trent's Last Case.

Philip Trent is a tall, gangly, youngish English artist who gets drawn into various mysteries and ends up solving them. He is pleasant and friendly, fond of a comfortable life style, and curious about crime, so much so that he'll abandon his art to respond to requests by London newspapers to help investigate crimes. He is a good investigator, but is not infallible and is quite capable of making dramatic mistakes on a case.
