This early work by Arthur Benjamin Reeve was originally published in 1916 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. 'The Ear in the Wall' features super-sleuth Professor Craig Kennedy who is sometimes referred to as "e;The American Sherlock Holmes"e; due to his astounding ability at crime solving and his Watson-like sidekick Walter Jameson, a newspaper reporter. In 'The Ear in the Wall,' Kennedy and Jameson, aided by a tough but compassionate woman detective start a race to save Betty Blackwell who has transcribed deals with criminal gangs and Wall Street plungers . Arthur Benjamin Reeve was born on 15th October 1880 in New York, USA. Reeve received his University education at Princeton and upon graduating enrolled at the New York Law School. However, his career was not destined to be in the field of Law. Between 1910 and 1918 he produced 82 short stories for Cosmopolitan. During this period he also began authoring screenplays, and by the end of the decade, his film career was at its peak with his name appearing on seven films, most of them serials and three of them starring Harry Houdini. Reeves died on 9th August 1936, a few years after moving to Trenton.
