Audemars, Pierre

Page history last edited by PBworks 13 years, 1 month ago

Pierre Audemars (1909-1989) was an English jeweller. He served in the Army from 1940 to 1946 and was married to Joan Wood. He also wrote under the name Peter Hodemart. His novels were set in France and featured Monsieur Pinaud and Hercule Renard.

 

Pinaud is characterised by sardonic humour, intrepid self-confidence, and much information - he declares, for instance, that a great detective "must know something about everything. Not everything about everything. And certainly not something about something. But something about everything." -- Mary Helen Becker
