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.´´ 1. Language: English. Narrator: Andrew Scott.
