Lash, Simon. Simon Lash was created by Frank Gruber (Otis Beagle, Johnny Fletcher, Captain March, Oliver Quade, Jim Strong, Sam Vedder, John Vedders) and appeared in Simon Lash, Private Detective (1941), Buffalo Box (1942), and Murder Ninety Seven (1948).

Simon Lash is a Bellem. He is a veteran of World War One and a former lawyer who has a foul attitude, is excessively hostile, and has a chip on his shoulder the size of the Ritz. He loves books, but that’s about the only good thing that can be said about him (besides his success rate in solving crimes).
