Tarrant, Trevis. Trevis Tarrant was created by C. Daly King (Michael Lord) and appeared in eight stories, beginning with “The Episode of Torment IV” (1934); the stories were collected in The Curious Mr. Tarrant (1935).

Trevis Tarrant is an amateur detective who takes on apparently supernatural crimes and uncovers the rational explanations for them. However, in "The Episode of the Final Bargain" Tarrant's female assistant is psychically attacked, and Tarrant is forced to release his astral body in order to save her. Tarrant is Watsoned by Jerry Phelan, but Tarrant’s most helpful assistant is his Japanese butler Katoh, who spies for Japan but also helps Tarrant solve his cases (although Tarrant never gives him any credit).
