about

This early work by Arthur Benjamin Reeve was originally published in 1915 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. 'The Exploits of Elaine' features super-sleuth Professor Craig Kennedy who is sometimes referred to as “The American Sherlock Holmes” due to his astounding ability at crime solving and his Watson-like sidekick Walter Jameson, a newspaper reporter. 'The Exploits of Elaine,' tells the story of a young woman named Elaine who, with the help of Kennedy, tries to find the man, known only as "The Clutching Hand", who murdered her father. 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. 'The Exploits of Elaine' was Reeves first screenplay, and by the end of the decade, his film career was at its peak with his name appearing on seven films, most of them serials and three of them starring Harry Houdini. Reeves died on 9th August 1936, a few years after moving to Trenton.
