From country houses in rural England, to secluded castles in the California desert, the seemingly amiable but razor sharp Chan solves murders and uncovers killers the world all over, with the aid, of course, of his Number One and Number Two Sons. Chan may drop his prepositions, but he's never at a loss for words, the philosophical super sleuth also famous for his many wise sayings, such as "kindness in heart better than gold in bank" and "insignificant molehill sometimes more important that conspicuous mountain".
