Burton, Inspector. Inspector Burton was created by Gladys Edson Locke (Mercedes Quero) and appeared in four novels from 1922 to 1925, beginning with Red Cavalier.

Inspector Burton is a sour, bulldoggish Scotland Yard detective who solves murders and thefts among the English upper classes. He is not unusually intelligent but is tenacious and not daunted by the differences in class between himself and his suspects. On occasion he works with Mercedes Quero.
