about


An American mystery writer. He is best known for creating the series character Professor Craig Kennedy, sometimes called "The American Sherlock Holmes," and his Dr Watson-like sidekick Walter Jameson, a newspaper reporter, in eighteen detective novels. The bulk of Reeve's fame is based on the 82 Craig Kennedy stories, published in Cosmopolitan magazine between 1910 and 1918.

Starting with The Exploits of Elaine (1914), Reeve began authoring screenplays. His film career reached its peak in 1919-20, when his name appeared on seven films, most of them serials, three of them starring Harry Houdini. After that—probably because of the migration to Hollywood of the film industry, and Reeve's desire to remain in the east—Reeve worked more sporadically in film. His career is marked by fiction originally published in newspapers, and a variety of magazines.

The Dream Doctor-
Detective stories in which Craig Kennedy, by means of his wonderful scientific knowledge, easily solves mysteries of the most baffling nature.

The Exploits of Elaine-
The story of a young woman named Elaine who, with the help of a detective, tries to find the man who murdered her father -- a man known only as "The Clutching Hand".

The Film Mystery-
A Craig Kennedy Scientific Mystery Novel. The sudden death of Stella Lamar as she is playing before the camera is the occasion for a story with a double appeal--a thoroughly tangled mystery solved by Craig Kennedy and the life of the movie people in all its fascinating detail.

Guy Garrick-
Guy Garrick, a detective who has made a scientific study of crime, has been the hero of a number of earlier short stories. In the present novel he is engaged in tracking down a gang of motor bandits. "An expensive car has been stolen from New York, and one of the stool pigeons of the police has been mysteriously murdered with no trace of the bullet or weapon that killed her. The body is found in New Jersey, though the police believe that she must have been murdered in a ladies' pool room, which she was investigating. The police, the city detectives, the automobile detectives and Guy Garrick are all working on the problem, and the unravelling and subsequent glory of Garrick are very exciting."

The Silent Bullet-
When Thomas A. Edison, one of the most ingenious Americans that ever lived and one of the greatest discoverers of new inventions, calls a book "very ingenious and new," that book certainly merits attention.

The Social Gangster-
Craig Kennedy, Jr. investigating a mysterious robbery, encounters a menacing condition peculiar to the social life of young people in our great cities, the gravity of which does not seem to be properly appreciated. It is only when some indulgent mother, like Mrs. Brackett, discovers she has lost control over her daughter that she can be made to realize the wide responsibilities of parental training. In this case, the importance of a robbery dwindles before the far more appalling situation in the Brackett household, and, if not for Kennedy and his science, the distress of two devoted parents will be pitiful indeed.

The Treasure-Train-
A railroad Vice President and and his chauffeur have sudden and mysterious seizures on the way to work; a family in New York city undergoes an epidemic of beri-beri; the American consul in the Virgin Islands collapses and dies for no apparent reason; a Wall Street speculator is apparently stabbed to death--with a rubber dagger. Who other than Craig Kennedy, armed with his knowledge of chemistry, technology and Freudian psychology could solve these mysteries? 

The War Terror-
A mystery, scientific, detective story, featuring Craig Kennedy as the hero.
