Murdock, Rachel. Rachel Murdock was created by “D.B. Olsen,” the pseudonym of Dolores B. Hitchens (Mr. Pennyfeather), and appeared in thirteen novels from 1939 to 1956, beginning with The Cat Saw Murder.

Rachel Murdock is a Spinster Detective. In her seventies, she lives with her sister, Jennifer, and a black cat. Rachel Murdock is slim and small with twinkling blue eyes and a grandmotherly appearance, but she loves lurid, gory mysteries. With the help of Jennifer and her friend on the police force, Lieutenant Stephen Mayhew, Rachel Murdock takes on whatever crimes she discovers or reads about and solves them all.
