Poole, Peeper. Peeper Poole was created by “Justin Case,” the pseudonym of Hugh B. Cave (Jeff Cardin, The Eel, Tsiang House, Peter Kane, Shane Kelley, Chowkander King), and appeared in four stories in Private Detective Stories in 1937 and 1938, beginning with “Sleep Baby Sleep” (Private Detective Stories, Sept. 1937).

P. Percy “Peeper” Poole is a news photographer who solves crimes on the side. Poole is honest–when his partner Benny tries to pad out an expense report, Poole will have none of it–but he is willing to pay people off when necessary.
