Orinoco Womble (tidy bag and all) Basically he became a detective when he studied forensic medicine.(He tells Maisie about learning what the dead can tell him). Part of the mystery apparently is, "Who is Maurice Blanche, really?" We are given teasers--he may be a big noise in the Foreign office or such as that, given his "continental services" and the letters on the wall. Is he English, or foreign? Where did he really spring from? He's the mystery man that makes Maisie what she is.
Libby He's a psychologist, which is sort of like a detective...
