Smaile, Oliver. Oliver Smaile was created by John Adye and appeared in At the House of the Priest (1925), The Golden Scarab (1926), and Flash of Lightning (1927).

Oliver Smaile is a British private detective whose cases verge on the fantastic, including one involving an apparent Egyptian curse. He is a “big, loosely built man with a round face, not remarkable for its intelligence” and has “small, but piercing eyes.” He is intelligent and careful in his investigations.
