Created by Neville Steed (pseudonym of Norman Sharam)
From what I hear, chatterbox PETER MARKLIN is a former British adman turned antique toy-car dealer and sometime-private eye who lives over his shop in tiny Studland village, and gets into far more than his fair share of trouble. Heavy on the English charm, this series supposedly teeters on the line between hard-boiled P.I. fiction and amateur sleuth cozy.
Marklin's creator goes by the name of Neville Steed, but he's actually Norman Sharam, who worked in advertising in London; writing and directing TV commercials. He also wrote a couple of books about 1930s P.I. Johnny Black.
