Reeve, Arthur B.: The Silent Bullet. v1. 15 June 07

This is a collection of short stories featuring Professor/"Detective" Craig Kennedy. These were published in the '20s - I used to have all these in a uniform hardback set back when I was in my 20s.

Kennedy's Dr.Watson-like sidekick is newspaper reporter Walter Jameson. Reeve was one of the first authors to combine an element of science into the mystery genre. Craig Kennedy is a professor of chemistry at a University in New York City who battles crime with his deductive powers and scientific genius. His travails are rife with various gadgets and inventions of his own making that assist in his work, including sophisticated phone devices, [sorry, no Ipods here], a fisheye keyhole spying device, portable lie detectors [I need this for my girl friend], and a machine that can apparently revive the recently dead. [available at Wal-Mart]. Walter Jameson is his room mate [huh?] and reporter for the New York Star.

I enjoyed reading these back when I was hungering for Sherlock Holmes. I haven't read one in over 30 years, so I think I'll give it a try.

I hope you enjoy it.

[Wow!! How does one make a bullet "silent"??!!!!]

I've read a couple of these in the past. Well worth a read. Not great literature, certainly, but fun.
