... Am I the only one who's noticed that the so-called "nameless detective" of the Factory Series does actually have a name? Or a surname, at any rate. It's mentioned once, in passing, and never again.

What's the protocol on this? I CAN'T be the only one who's spotted it. Is it some sort of super-special secret that Derek Raymond devotees hug close to their chests? Perhaps it would be fun to keep it as a top secret, rather than splashed all over the 'net... so I will only say that the name has three syllables.

Who else has spotted it? (If you have, don't divulge it here! A smallish clue, such as the fifth letter of the name, should suffice.)

If you haven't already spotted it, what better excuse to re-read the Factory series again?

Derek Raymond's complete (all five) Factory series has been reprinted in paperback and e-book by Melville House Publishing.

ooh, now i really want to read all the books! I just finished He died with his eyes open and am in total book love. Another reason to get the rest of the series!

The wikipedia article about him is excellent.

Well off thread, but I hope in the spirit of the OP.
Inspector Morses "first name" is only revealed, in passing, once? only towards the end of the series.
And although it "ain't" cinema-noir, the series 'rang similar bells' to me.

Why? Who the Hell knows and who the Hell cares 'sweetheart'.
