Spinnet, Phineas. Phineas Spinnet was created by Andrew Soutar (Kharduni), and appeared in fourteen novels from 1933 to 1941, beginning with The Hanging Sword!

Phineas Spinnet is an “inquiry agent” whose office is in London but whose cases, several of which are espionage-oriented, take him around Europe. He is assisted by the lugubrious ex-con Timson, although Spinnet’s ample ego, arrogance, and misanthropy means that he rarely acknowledges assistance from anyone. Spinnet cares more about his jigsaw collection than he does about other people.
