Travers, Ludovic. Ludovic Travers was created by Christopher Bush and appeared in sixty-three novels from 1926 to 1967, beginning with The Plumley Inheritance.

Ludovic Travers is a wealthy amateur detective who assists Scotland Yard and is an unofficial adviser to Superintendent Wharton. Travers has a genial personality: “unconventionality that was no pose, a catholicity and sympathy of ideas, a shrewdness of observation that nearly always hit the nail on the head, and a strain of boyishness that was unaffected and appealing.” His specialty is destroying the "unbreakable" alibi.
