Synopsis

The War Terror
by Arthur B. Reeve

This book "The War Terror" is  part of series of 12 books of "Craig Kennedy, Scientific Detective Series"

The title story is anteresting as an adventure, in which a beautiful anarchist recruits Kenned to save the life of a German financier/spy she has sworn to kill. In this one Kennedy's detection is of relatively minor importance and his participation is not necessary to abort both the murder and the espionage mission.

The other stories involve Kennedy in his usual role of uncovering murderers, thwarting blackmailers and disruting heroin gangs through his scientific method. It has the virtue of most Kennedy stories in presenting not bad detection with a picture of the cutting edge of science in the second decade of the twentieth century. Among the delights are the use of a home-made hydrolysis machine to save the life a pet dog and at the same time prevent a murder.
