Fernández Britten is, in many ways, an ordinary private detective. He specializes in confirming clients' worst suspicions about their husbands, wives, lovers, and co-workers. He's so good at it that he's even earned a nickname: "The Heartbreaker." But in other ways, Britten's a little bit unconventional: He yearns for a case that might offer redemption. Also, his partner, Stewart Brülightly, is a talking tea bag.
