Created by Rex Stout
TECUMSEH FOX is a private eye who shows up in a few novels by Rex Stout. Unlike some of his other detectives, Tecumseh is an average-looking guy, except for his “penetrating” brown eyes and his rather dapper fashion sense. Tecumseh lives and works out of a large farm full of animals in New York’s Westchester County. By the way, despite his name, Tecumseh denies that he is part-Native American.
Stout often claimed that Tecumseh’s first case, Double for Death (1939) was the best detective story he ever wrote. Stout also created a couple of other eyes: Dol Bonner was one of the first female eyes to appear in novel form, and she enjoyed some success with another character of his, Nero Wolfe, a rather portly fellow who lives in the city. You may have heard of him…
