Burrill, William. William Burrill was created by Adam Gordon MacLeod and appeared in The Marloe Mansions Murder (1928), The Case of Matthew Crake (1932), and Death Stalked the Fells (1937).

William Burrill, a Cambridge man, was for many years “one of the cleverest members of the Criminal Investigation Department of Scotland Yard.” But then two relatives died, turning him into Sir William Burrill, fourth baronet, and he retired to write plays. He continues to solve cases when asked to by friends and former colleagues. Burrill is jovial, brisk, and good-humored.
