Description

This carefully crafted ebook: "EUGÉNE VALMONT & SHERLAW KOMBS: THE SUPER SLEUTHS (Mystery Classics Series)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents.
"When I say I am called Valmont, the name will convey no impression to the reader, one way or another. My occupation is that of private detective in London, but if you ask any policeman in Paris who Valmont was he will likely be able to tell you, unless he is a recent recruit. If you ask him where Valmont is now, he may not know, yet I have a good deal to do with the Parisian police." (The Triumph of Eugéne Valmont)
Robert Barr (1849-1912) was a Scottish-Canadian short story writer and novelist, born in Glasgow, Scotland. His famous detective character Eugéne Valmont, fashioned after Sherlock Holmes, is said to be the inspiration behind Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot. Barr also wrote two parodies of Holmes as a form of flattery to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in the fashion of other such parodies being written at that time. And in spite of these parodies the two remained good friends all through their lives. A must read for all Holmes' enthusiasts!
