Sir Henry Merrivale is one of the world's most beloved detectives by aficionados of detective, crime, and murder mystery books.
John Dickson Carr was so prolific that there came a time when his publisher (Harper & Brothers) asked him to slow down. His response was to keep his commitment to Harper & Brothers by continuing his output for the books he promised them. But once this ongoing, annual commitment was fulfilled, he brought new material to publishers William Morrow.
A new detective, John Gaunt, appeared only in The Bowstring Murders (1933). But Carr also created Sir Henry Merrivale (a.k.a, H.M. or "the Old Man"), who was to develop into a series detective (22 books over the next 35 years).
