(The first book in the Craig Kennedy, Scientific Detective series)
A novel by

 
 
"The Silent Bullet" is a collection of 12 detective short stories by Arthur B. Reeve, featuring Craig Kennedy and Walter Jameson - the American Holmes and Watson.

Excerpt from the book:

"It has always seemed strange to me that no one has ever endowed a professorship in criminal science in any of our large universities." "Why should there be a chair in criminal science?" I remarked argumentatively, settling back in my chair. "I've done my turn at police headquarters reporting, and I can tell you, Craig, it's no place for a college professor. Crime is just crime. And as for dealing with it, the good detective is born and bred to it. College professors for the sociology of the thing, yes; for the detection of it, give me a Byrnes." "On the contrary," replied Kennedy, "there is a distinct place for science in the detection of crime. On the Continent they are far in advance of us in that respect. We are mere children beside a dozen crime-specialists in Paris, whom I could name."
