Lawrence Pinkley PI

Chapter 1“Allow me to introduce myself….

My name is Lawrence Pinkley. I’m a Private Detective.

Have you ever wanted to be a detective? Well, not me. I never intended following in my father’s footsteps, but following his death I inherited the Pinkley Investigation Group, or PIG for short. My father had always been a fan of the 1930’s when all good private detectives were American and wore brown trench coats, white shirts and Trilby hats.

But, we didn’t live in Chicago. We live in Whitby in the cold north east of England.

You might not think Whitby varies much compared to Chicago, but it does. Whitby is your traditional English coastal town. Wet, windy and smelling of fish. Saturdays bring the added sights and smells brought by the market, including more fish.

So, here I am, 18 years old, in possession of an old trench coat and greasy rimmed hat, sitting inside a stale smelly room, waiting for my next case. Every young man’s dream.”
