    Those of a technical turn of mind will enjoy these books more than those who want personality in characters. That said the books are interesting for our glimpse into the new and developing technologies at the turn of the twentieth century. I got a kick out of seeing things like a lie detector introduced with hushed and awed tones as the latest thing.

    These are really enjoyable stories so far. They were described in the blurb I read as "an American Sherlock Holmes", but Craig Kennedy is much more about scientific techniques than deductive reasoning. His sidekick is a journalist, and is noticeably less bumbling than Dr. Watson, although he does tend to admire Kennedy's genius more than to contribute to it. Although technically these are mysteries, they *feel* like good old-fashioned science fiction. They're set in an era when modern technology These are really enjoyable stories so far.

They're set in an era when modern technology was just starting to make serious inroads into people's lives, so that gives it a slightly exotic air; and gives the science and technology a very futuristic feel for the time.

    Craig Kennedy has been called the "American Sherlock Holmes". He is a Columbia Chemistry professor who along with his newspaper reporter roommate assists the police in solving crimes. The author has his detective create elaborate scientific devices to aid in solving the crimes. For the time period these books were written the author displayed remarkable imagination with some of the devices being recognizable today. My favorite was the detective using what would be in modern terms, DNA testing. T Craig Kennedy has been called the "American Sherlock Holmes".
