Oakes, Hugo. Hugo Oakes was created by “J. Lane Linklater,” the pseudonym of Alexander William Watkins (Hard-Boiled Karney, Paul C. Pitt), and appeared in twenty stories in Detective Fiction Weekly from 1929 to 1934, beginning with “Hello, Jim!” (Detective Fiction Weekly, Sept. 7, 1929).
“Hugo Oakes, lawyer, investigator, gruff friend of the penniless in trouble, had four great interests in life. Those interests were law, detection, people—and horses.” “He was a wizard with flowery eloquence, too, but outside of the courtroom it didn’t seem to go with his age-colored, shapeless clothes, his casual manner, his pudgy person.”
