This book was first published in 1910. The main character is Craig Kennedy and he is compared to Sherlock Holmes. The writing style is old but the mysteries are good and will keep you reading.
Poisoned Pen Press and Edelweiss let me read this book for review (thank you). It will be published April 6th.
Kennedy is no slacker in detective work. He uses methods that were not common then to get his information. He always succeeds in these cases.
There are twelve stories here and comments made that seem unusual are explained in footnotes.
In one story he even brings a dead man back to life.
He's smart and devoted to solving mysteries. He can go under cover. If I needed a detective, I'd ask him for help...
