Series Characters
Ludovic Travers
The genial, talkative amateur detective, Ludovic Travers, is the unofficial advisor to Scotland Yard Superintendent Wharton. Travers is tall (6'3") and very thin. The large, horn-rimmed eyeglasses he wears give him the appearance of "a benevolent secretary bird." He is intelligent, an author, and expert on social economics. Although he was born to a wealthy family, his philosophy borders on the communistic. In detection, which he has pursued for 40 years, he has little patience with routine, always seeking, usually finding, the short-cut.
