This early work by Arthur Benjamin Reeve was originally published in 1915 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. 'Gold of the Gods' features Professor Craig Kennedy who is sometimes compared to as "The American Sherlock Holmes" due to his astounding ability at crime solving and his Watson-like sidekick Walter Jameson. The story tells of a Professor of Archaeology who asks for Kennedy's assistance in finding a stolen ancient dagger recently brought back from a Peruvian dig. While the Professor is still conferring with Kennedy, word comes that a wealthy Peruvian has just been murdered with the very same stolen dagger. Arthur Benjamin Reeve was born on 15th October 1880 in New York, USA. Reeve received his University education at Princeton and upon graduating enrolled at the New York Law School. However, his career was not destined to be in the field of Law. Between 1910 and 1918 he produced 82 short stories for Cosmopolitan. Reeve later continued to write detective stories for pulp magazines, but also covered many celebrated crime cases for various newspapers, including the murder of William Desmond Taylor, and the trial of Lindbergh baby kidnapper, Bruno Hauptmann. Reeves died on 9th August 1936, a few years after moving to Trenton.
