Men of Means by All Means

Leo Roi
Created by Phillips Lore (pseud. of Terrence Lore Smith)
(1942-88)

Definitely not your average down on his luck, behind on his rent gumshoe, LEO ROI is a millionaire turned private eye (oops! investigate attorney). He has a wife, a chauffeur, a houseman, a classic Bentley and all sorts of other nice things, including a fancy condo on the lake in Chicago. By the way, the wealth is inherited, a legacy of his father, a French Canadian who came to the States to help run booze for Capone, and stuck around to go legit, as a liquor importer after Prohibition ended. To his credit, Leo still works for a living, at Roi & Pine, Attorneys at Law.

Another millionaire P.I. is Arthur Rosenfeld's Nestor Dark.
