John R. Coryell (1848–1924) was a prolific dime novel author. He wrote under many pseudonyms, one of them being Nicholas Carter, probably the best known. Nick Carter is a fictional character, invented by John R. Coryell and Ormond G. Smith, who began as a thriller novel private detective and has appeared in a variety of formats over more than a century. His father, Sin Carter, was also a detective and he taught young Nick some investigation techniques from early ages. After his father's death during one case, Nick takes over the investigation and continues to work as a detective. A master of disguise, Nick Carter spends most of the time under cover and keeps a low profile, based in an apartment on Madison Avenue in New York.
