East, Mark. Mark East was created by Hilda Lawrence and appeared in Blood Upon the Snow (1944), A Time to Die (1945), and Death of a Doll (1947).

Mark East is a hard-boiled private detective working in Manhattan. He is unusually cynical and world-weary for his young age. He is assisted by two elderly amateur detectives, Beulah Pond (who is somewhat scatterbrained) and Bessy Petty (who is rather clever).
