"During his early career, Reeve was a famous author whose name was almost always prominently featured on the magazine covers,
[yet] he never rose above the level of mediocrity. His characters are all cardboard, his dialog stiff, his plots mechanical, and his style
generic. He is also a complete chucklehead . . . in his last published story "The Royal Racket", his female detective Clare Kendall
has lettered on her office door 'Clare Kendall, Secret Agent'!" . . . "I myself have for many years concealed deep within my bosom
a secret affection for Reeve and his creations; if you have [similar taste], you'll enjoy every tale."  — Amazon reviewer Rory Coker
