SYMINGTON BYRD: A Traditional Detective For The 21st Century
The Gentleman detective – a phrase synonymous with Lord Peter Wimsey and Sherlock Holmes. Following the evidence, using the technology of the day. Progressive in some respects but very much the product of their era. They inhabit a world where men were real men, and female sleuths wore fluffy pink shawls.
In new century packed procedural dramas with their hard bitten, hard drinking, world weary detectives, it soon became obvious that what’s needed is a flamboyant earl – with a nose for trouble and an eye for the one lady who’ll never say yes.
Meet Symington, Earl Byrd: Playboy. Gentleman. Detective.
