In 1910 England in the countryside town of Haxford, there’s a new Chief Police Inspector – the dapper, unflappable Pignon Scorbion. It isn’t long before Haxford finds itself very much in need of his detective abilities. Luckily, Scorbion and the town’s barber are old acquaintances, and they, the barbershop’s quirky, memorable employees, and a young reporter investigate a trio of crimes using the barbershop as their interrogation room. Just as it seems nothing can derail Scorbion’s cool head and unerring nose for deduction, in walks Thelma Smith – dazzling, whip-smart, and newly single. Has Pignon Scorbion finally met his match?
For fans of Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot, this quirky new detective and ensemble cast of characters will feel both comfortingly familiar and thrillingly new.
