Twombley, Jabez. Jabez Twombley was created by Sidney Williams and appeared in The Murder of Miss Betty Sloan (1935) and The Aconite Murders (1956).

Jabez Twombley is a retired district attorney in Philadelphia who has opened a private detective’s agency. He’s not particularly enthusiastic about his new work, however, and would much rather stay in his office and examine his stamp collection. His friend Mr. Sherwin, who is an attorney, is forced to lure Twombley with rare stamps to get him do take on a case.
