Strang, Jim. Jim Strang was created by George Dilnot (Crime Club, Horace Elver, Val Emery, Inspector Strickland) and appeared in a number of stories in The Blue Book Magazine and two novels from 1915 to 1942, beginning with “The Secret Service Man” (The Blue Book Magazine, Aug. 1915).

Jim Strang is the brilliant English engineer who “solved the problem of perfect automatic stability for aeroplanes.” Unfortunately, because of his invention he and his plans are the target of enemy spies, and Strang is forced to work with the Secret Service to prevent the theft of the plans and his own murder. Strang goes on to be of assistance to the Secret Service on several other occasions.
