Purkis and Wilburt Flower (The Flower Case)

Created by James Saunders

The Flower Case was a radio mini-series broadcast as part of the CBC’s The Mystery Project in 2000, featuring rival private investigators PURKIS and WILBURT FLOWER, who just happen to be father and son.

Neither’s exactly setting the world on fire (or getting any younger) though, and both have resorted to taking domestic cases. Fine. No problem.

And then their cases overlap…

I never caught this one, so if anyone out there did, I wouldn’t mind being filled in.
