Detective Biography

"Note to self: get some sleep."

"Opinionated weather forecasters telling me it’s going to be a miserable day. Miserable to who? I quite like a bit of drizzle, so stick to the facts."

"Facts! Facts! I must have facts - I cannot make bricks without clay!"

"Would people kindly STOP STEALING MY SOCKS!?"

*************************

I have a knack for finding things. And people - whether it's to rescue them or to put them in cuffs. Some have nicknamed me "Sam Spade" as no matter how tough the case, I always keep digging.

As to my real name? Well let's just say that you don't need to know that.

I always remember my first case - the client was a local baker, who still supplies me with a box of blueberry muffins each week on the house. Although I rather stumbled my way to solving her predicament, and thus proving her innocence, she remains a loyal and faithful friend. Perhaps it's because I never gave up on her. I'm a good judge of character like that.

And I still remain rather touched by all this, as loyalty and friendship seem to be qualities that are in far too short a supply these days.

Especially in this business, where people will sell you down the river for a stick of gum - let alone a box of muffins.

ELECTRIC LIGHT (P J Harvey)

The beauty of her, under electric light
The beauty of her, under electric light
Tears my heart out every time

Dawn there waiting, right outside
Dawn there waiting, right outside
She tears my heart out every time

Siren rising across the sky
Sirens rising across the sky
Tears my heart out every time
