Hames, Peter. Peter Hames was created by E. Phillips Oppenheim (Peter Benskin, General Besserley, Stanley Brooke, Joseph P. Cray, John Dickens, Nicholas Goade, Malcolm Gossett, B. JasenGerald Jennerton, Algernon Knox, Ambrose LavendaleJohn 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 in Collier’s in 1931, beginning with “One Terrible Night” (Collier’s, Jan. 10, 1931).

Hames is a former N.Y.P.D. inspector who was tossed off the force when he tried to intervene in the trial of a man who was being framed. After losing his job, however, Hames inherited a million dollars, and moved to Monte Carlo to live there. But he still solves crimes as an amateur detective.
