Brierly, Herman. Herman Brierly was created by Will Levinrew and appeared in four novels from 1929 to 1933, beginning with The Poison Plague.

Professor Herman Brierly is “undoubtedly the greatest living scientist. He has dabbled in pretty nearly everything. Besides being the foremost chemist and physicist, I know on good authority that he is often consulted by anatomists, physiologists and bacteriologists on their own subjects.” With qualifications like that, it’s a darn good thing that Brierly sets his mind to crime-solving as an amateur detective. He is addicted to race cars, has a well-deserved opinion of himself, is fearless, irascible, and has a “penetrating” gaze.
