Thomas, Ethel. Ethel Thomas was created by Cortland Fitzsimmons (Arthur Martinson, Percy Peacock) and appeared in four novels from 1936 to 1941, beginning with The Whispering Window.

Ethel Thomas is a Spinster Detective. She is an old maid and a socialite, highly placed in New York society and descended from a very prestigious family. When murder disturbs her rarified social circles, she takes the time out from her busy day to investigate the crime and to solve them. She's something of a busybody, but is not unkind.
