Professor Craig Kennedy, known as the “American Sherlock Holmes,” and Elaine try to track down the ruthless villain who murdered her father and has more sinister plans in mind …

Professor Craig Kennedy and his loyal sidekick, newspaper reporter Walter Jameson, first learn of the Clutching Hand and his gang when they investigate a string of murders involving the policyholders of Taylor Dodge’s insurance company. After receiving a threatening note, Dodge himself is robbed and killed, and his daughter, Elaine, turns to Kennedy for help.
