Jennerton, Gerald. Gerald Jennerton was created by E. Phillips Oppenheim (Peter Benskin, General Besserley, Stanley Brooke, Joseph P. Cray, John Dickens, Nicholas Goade, Malcolm Gossett, Peter Hames, B. Jasen, Algernon Knox, Ambrose Lavendale, John T. Laxworthy, Baroness Claire Linz, Joseph Londe, Mannister, Lucie Mott, Sanford Quest, Aaron Rodd, Peter Ruff, Monsieur Sabin, Michael Sayers, Jasper Slane) and appeared in ten stories in The Country Gentleman in 1928 and 1929, beginning with “Three Birds With One Stone” (The Country Gentleman, June 1928); the stories were collected in Jennerton & Co. (1929).

Gerald Jennerton is the only son of Mr. Jennerton, of Jennerton’s Limited, “the greatest firm of private detectives the world has ever known–a more important corporation now than even our American rivals.” When Mr. Jennerton disappears, the son is forced to investigate the disappearance. When Jennerton reappears (he was on a case in Australia) Gerald joins the firm and helps his father solve a variety of crimes.
