Claude Luttrell is an employee of Parker Pyne. Described as a lounge lizard it is his job to provide romantic interest for female clients. Although a smooth operator and considered a "hardened lounge lizard", Parker Pyne was surprised and interested when Claude expresses scruples about his role in romancing Maria Packington in The Case of the Middle-aged Wife. This was a development that needed to be watched carefully.
