You are a private investigator. You have worked for Mrs. Sally Canetti during the last 3 months – chasing her cheating husband. Write a short note to her (on the following photo).
I hope you saw the picture that I have sent along with this note. The girl in the picture is your ex-husband’s present wife’s brother’s neighbor’s cat’s owner’s sister-in-law’s niece – Clara. She had a valid reason to cheat on your husband you see… Twenty years ago, you
kidnapped dognapped Clara’s dog Mr.Huggly-doo and ever since then, Clara has been trying to get even with you. I also learned something interesting. it seems your neighbor Tom is spending a lot of time with you than with his wife. Do I smell fried fish in here?
P.S.: If you want me to keep quiet about Tom, then remember that my P.I charges are going to be double than what I quoted initially. And yeah, please send me a batch of your freshly baked peanut brittle along with the cheque. Thanks!
Huckledoobie Goof, P.I
Pick 3 best detectives of all time (movies and literature). Add the pictures/gifs if you like. Explain shortly your choices
Poirot is my all-time favorite detective. With an egg-shaped head and a funny mustache, Poirot always makes use of his grey cells.
Not a dialog or excerpt from any book, the below story was written by me for a flash fiction prompt.
Hercule Poirot: Waiter! What is this? (Pointing at the eggs)
Waiter: Eggs, Sir. Boiled, as you asked.
Hastings: Good Lord, Poirot! What is wrong with the egg?
Hercule Poirot: This is not a perfectly shaped egg, Hastings! Poirot would eat nothing but a perfectly round egg!!
Sherlock Holmes (played by Jeremy Brett)
I am going to be a bit partial here and say that Sherlock, as played by Jeremy Brett is my favorite. Although, Cumberbatch is good too, Jeremy Brett better. 🙂
Not many people have heard of detective Vera Stanhope. The book series – Vera is written by Ann Cleeves ( She is also the author of Shetland series – another detective series). Set in the beautiful NorthUmberland, Vera is a slow-paced detective series – Vera solves the case as well as fights her inner demons.
I haven’t listed the above-mentioned detectives in any particular order, as all three are my favorites.
