Lewis, Gregory. Gregory Lewis was created by “David Frome,” the pseudonym of Zenith Jones Brown (Joseph Kelly, Evan Pinkerton, Colonel John Primrose), and appeared in The Murder of an Old Man (1929) and The Strange Death of Martin Green (1931).

Gregory Lewis is a Great Detective. Major Gregory Lewis is “sometime M.P. for Upper Saffron and present inquiry agent for the upper classes” in London and its outer boroughs and exurbs. In his role as “inquiry agent” (i.e., private detective) he solves whatever murders he discovers. He’s genial, a World War One veteran, and is in the Sherlock Holmes mode without any of Holmes’ trappings or externals.
