Place, Thackeray. Thackeray Place was created by Kirby Williams and appeared in The C.V.C. Murders (1929) and The Opera Murders (1933).

Thackeray Place is a Great Detective. Dr. Thackeray Place is a physician and amateur criminologist in Chicago. He is “tall, grave, and astonishingly red headed, a man of striking appearance, with a certain formal precision of speech that strengthened the impression of aloofness given by his cold blue eyes.” He is hired by the Citizens Vigilance Committee, a group of six Chicago millionaires, to draw up a report on the causes of crime in Chicago and the solutions to it. This brings Place into conflict with the Chicago Mob. Place is Watsoned by John P.W. Tracy, former aide to the state’s attorney of Cook County.
