Goade, Nicholas. Nicholas Goade was created by E. Phillips Oppenheim (Peter Benskin, General Besserley, Stanley Brooke, Joseph P. Cray, John Dickens, Malcolm Gossett, Peter Hames, B. Jasen, Gerald Jennerton, Algernon Knox, Ambrose Lavendale, John T. Laxworthy, Baroness Claire Linz, Joseph Londe, Mannister, Lucie Mott, Sanford Quest, Aaron Rodd, Peter Ruff, Monsieur Sabin, Michael Sayers, Jasper Slane) and appeared in ten stories which were collected in Nicholas Goade, Detective (1927).

Nicholas Goade is a detective with Scotland Yard. He is in the Great Detective mode, but is recognizably human, and is even capable of being unnerved by the unpleasantly insane. Goade is “powerfully built, somewhat ruddy of complexion, with shrewd, blue eyes and an indomitable jaw.” He likes to paint in rural England, although he’s not particularly good at it, and is even worse as a wanderer along the rural English roads. He is accompanied by his dog Flip.
