From publisher blurb:
The Detective Base Class
Detective fiction has been a staple of literature. The stories of C. Auguste Dupin, Sherlock Holmes, Judge Dee, Father Brown, the Hardy Boys, Hercule Poirot, Nancy Drew, Miss Marple, Dr. Who, and even Dr. Gregory House have captivated the minds and hearts of many.
Detectives can see through any ploy, solve any crime, foil any villain, and always remain one step ahead of their prey. Some are literal officers of the law; some are nothing more than brilliant amateur sleuths; and others work as private investigators for hire. Whatever the case may be, they are all astute and wield their repartee like a sword to dispel ignorance and overcome mystery wherever they go.
