Craig Kennedy was a fictional professor of chemistry and amateur detective created by Arthur Reeve in 1910. Kennedy was known for using the latest scientific and technological advances to solve baffling mysteries set in New York City. He also had a sidekick in newspaper reporter Walter Jameson. Thus, the Craig Kennedy mysteries are the American counterpart of the Dr. Thorndyke mysteries.
While the stories are not as good as such contemporary mysteries as those involving Dr. Thorndyke or The Thinking Machine (Augustus S. F. X. Van Dusen), they are enjoyable.
