There is a Janet in a Tommy&Tuppence story --- Janet Smith, being sought after by Lord St. Vincent as he's too shy to approach her himself --- and in this story (the first major one of the Blunt's Brilliant Detectives) Tuppence promises 24-hour turnaround on the solution (which happens) on finding the lady and garners T&T a great reputation for gaining other business clients.

Hello James

Thank you for your comment. Didn't have a direct email for you, so am replying via this page. It was actually me who recommended your excellent book, which was bought for me some time ago. I intend to do a review of your book and post it on the website.

If questions like this interest you, you may enjoy my book, The Detective Novels of Agatha Christie. At the end of the book is a complete character index of all characters, major and minor. The book may be at your local library or you may buy it from the publisher McFarland, or from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc.
