Dr. Hiram Arthur
Created by Roger Delancey
The advertising blurb promises that:
Yeah, the "picturesque investigator" in Murder Below Wall Street, is called DR. HIRAM ARTHUR.
I dunno. Sounds like a bit of a stuffed shirt to me.
Turns out, though, despite the blue blood nomenclature, that the good doc is an interesting enough elderly private detective, in a hopelessly Golden Age, non-hard-boiled way. A former engineer turned private detective, Hiram serves the "financial magnates of Wall Street." and you've just gotta love the blurb:
Yes, be alert! The world needs more lerts.
