Poole, Inspector. Inspector Poole was created by “Henry Wade,” the pseudonym of Henry L. Aubrey-Fletcher (John Bragg, Major Faide, Inspector Lott), and appeared in eight novels from 1929 to 1954, beginning with The Duke of York’s Steps.

John Poole is a Detective-Inspector with Scotland Yard. He came from a good background–wealth, private school, Oxford–and passed the Bar, all the while with his eye on the Yard. He advances quickly, for one so young, and rewards his superiors with several tough cases cracked, eventually becoming a Chief Inspector. He is tall, slim, athletic, handsome, with grey steady eyes and a serious attitude toward crime-solving.
