Tarleton, John. John Tarleton was created by Frederic Franklin Van de Water and appeared in Still Waters (1929) and Plunder (1933).

John Tarleton is a rookie Corporal in the New York State Police. Tarleton, who rides a motorcycle, is a cool, impassive, and implicitly superior man. He’s observant, doesn’t allow himself to be drawn into irrelevant small-town politics, and is too good a policeman to remain a Corporal for very long.
