Bell, Garnett. Garnett Bell was created by “Maurice Everard,” the pseudonym of Cecil H. Bullivant (Beryl Dacre), and appeared in eight stories and two novels and short story collections from 1915 to 1930, beginning with “A Tale of Twelve Cities” (The Boys’ Friend, Apr. 8, 1915).

Garnett Bell is a Great Detective. He is an amateur consulting detective based in London, with an apartment on Baker Street, a love for tobacco, and an assistant named Peters; he is treated deferentially by the police, and in most ways is a uncomplicated lift of Sherlock Holmes. However, Bell is in love with a woman, Natalie Gray, which Holmes never allows himself the luxury of. Bell is assisted by Barney Martin and Kit Hampton, two boys.
