Created by George Harmon Coxe (1901-84)
He's certainly not working very hard at it -- he's only taken three or four jobs in the two years his long-suffering, sardonic secretary Sue Marshall has been with him.
Then again, he doesn't need the money, coming from a "good" family. So it usually takes a bit of nagging from a very bored Sue before he'll even take a case.
The prolific writer Coxe has several other PI series characters, including Sam Crombie, Leon Morley and Jack Fenner, as well as his best known creations, crime photographers, Flashgun Casey and Kent Murdock who are basically private eyes with cameras.
