Harper, Stephen. Stephen Harper was created by Walter C. Brown (Sah-Jin) and appeared in Second Chance (1929), Laughing Death (1932), and Murder at Mocking House (1933).

Stephen Harper is a Detective-Sergeant for the Homicide Squad of the N.Y.P.D., and solves a variety of brutal murders, both of ordinary citizens and of underworld gunsels. He is assisted by the “lazily philosophic” Wharton, the Irish Lafferty, and the fearsome “Tiger” Marin, “whom the underworld feared more than any, perhaps, the long-legged, frosty-eyed” Harper.
