Thompson, Jake. Jake Thompson was created by Evelyn Cameron and appeared in Dead Man’s Shoes (1939) and Malice Domestic (1940).
Jake Thompson is the sheriff of Percha County in Texas. He is a short, clean-shaven, balding, sunburned old man, usually wearing boots, spurs, and a big hat, with a thick Texas accent and retiring, almost sweet manner. Years before he retired to Percha County, however, he was a Texas Ranger “and God knows what else. He’s full of bullets and bullet holes.” He has a habit of twirling his hat or rubbing his right ear.
