About the Author
Mystery writer, journalist and screenwriter Arthur Benjamin Reeve (1880-1936) was born in Brooklyn, New York and studied at Princeton and New York Law School. As a journalist, he covered some of the most infamous criminal trials of his time, including that of Bruno Hauptmann, the kidnapper of the Lindbergh baby. However, it was Reeve's foray into fiction that launched him to national fame, with the creation of his best-known character, scientist detective Professor Craig Kennedy. First published as a series in Cosmopolitan Magazine between 1910-1918, the adventures of Craig Kennedy were so popular that Reeves went on to write 26 novels featuring Kennedy, as well as short stories for numerous magazines.
