Owen, Bobby. Bobby Owen was created by E.R. Punshon (Inspector Carter) and appeared in thirty-five novels from 1933 to 1956, beginning with Information Received.

Bobby Owen is an Oxbridge graduate—handsome, well-educated, and sophisticated. But the Depression is gripping England hard, and the police are the only ones hiring. So Owen joins the ranks and works his way up from Police Constable to Commander of Scotland Yard. He is intelligent and educated in modern criminological innovations, and is bored with the mundane and ordinary.
