Devrite, George. George Devrite was created by Tom Curry (Captain Mesquite, Francis DeVrite, Daniel Harwin, Mac Macnamara, Rio Kid) and appeared in seven stories in Detective Fiction Weekly from 1936 to 1940, beginning with “The Green Fingers of Death” (Detective Fiction Weekly, Aug. 22, 1936).

George Devrite is an undercover agent of the N.Y.P.D. who takes on rackets and is generally a near-exact double for Francis DeVrite. George Devrite reports to Inspector Hallihan and only gets credit for his cases in the police’s secret files.
