Vachell, Superintendent. Superintendent Vachell was created by Elspeth Huxley and appeared in Murder at Government House (1937), Murder on Safari (1938), and Death of an Aryan (1939).

Superintendent Vachell is a Canadian who works for the Criminal Investigation Division in the African colony of “Chania” and in South Africa. He is lanky, speaks with a slight Canadian twang, and is observant, but his investigatory methods are often unorthodox and he gets in trouble with politicians and government officials.
