The Oscar Tremont Mysteries

Who is Oscar Tremont, Investigator of the Strange and Inexplicable?
He is a private investigator who solves seemingly inexplicable puzzles. He is a dichotomy of Victorian charm and progressive spirit. He has a keen intellect, is a master of disguise, is rather fond of whisky, and has a tendency to enter buildings illegally while working on a case. He uncovers secrets, but he also has many of his own. With every new adventure, you'll grow to understand this complex chap a little more.

What readers say about Oscar Tremont:

"BRISBANE'S MODERN-DAY SHERLOCK HOLMES is a mystery-solving maniac. These four short cases are entertaining, and unique. Trost makes the pages melt away with his tight writing style. Enjoyed this book."
- Stephen Ormsby, four-star Goodreads review

"AN UTTERLY ENJOYABLE SELECTION OF STORIES from the cases of fictional sleuth, Oscar Tremont. Each story is well crafted and engaging. I'd already read one of the stories,"The Ghosts of Walhalla", in an anthology, but was quite happy to reread it, even though I knew the ending. I love that the stories are set in Australia, and even though I'm not overly familiar with Brisbane (only been there a couple of times), I feel I am there in these tales. Great rainy day reading - and I mean that in the best way possible."
- Karen Bayly, five-star Goodreads review

"We are all familiar with Sherlock Holmes and his unparalleled intellect and skills of deduction. But WHAT IF WE WERE TO TAKE HOLMES AND MAKE HIM MORE OF AN EVERYMAN? With a loving & exasperated wife, a home in the suburbs, and too much time on his hands? What would we get? Well, the end product would be Oscar Tremont, an investigator specializing in bizarre and random mysteries."
- Jack Wells, five-star Amazon review

"I found these stories to be easy reads with the right combination of fun and mystery. OSCAR TREMONT IS A CLEVER, CUNNING INVESTIGATOR who would rather solve an interesting mystery than get paid for a boring one, much to his wife's consternation. The characters and situations are fun, quirky, and will leave you clamoring for more. Oscar Tremont is a perfect addition to that club of literary super-sleuths that includes C. Auguste Dupin and Sherlock Holmes."
- Jim X Dodge, author of Theta House and The Bite

Cameron, I am going into Amazon to see what I can see, as they say. Your descriptions intrigue me, and I know my mother may be interested in some of these also. Mom is a fan, too, of the stories about Sherlock and his wife Mary. Anyway, off I go, and thank you.
