Publisher Description

An American actor and writer, born in Brooklyn, N. Y. He went on the stage when only 16 years old.
Hanshew's best-known creation was the consulting detective Hamilton Cleek, known as "the man of the forty faces" for his incredible skill at disguise. The central figure in dozens of short stories that began to appear in 1910 and were subsequently collected in a series of books, Cleek is based in Clarges Street, London, where he is constantly consulted by Inspector Narkom of Scotland Yard. Hamilton Cleek is laughably unrealistic, at least to the modern reader, not only for his ability to impersonate anyone but for his physical derring-do and his frequent melodramatic encounters with Margot, "Queen of the Apaches", and her partner-in-crime Merode.
The Man of the Forty Faces appeared in book form in 1910, however, the year before Reeve started writing his Craig Kennedy tales in 1911.

The Riddle of the Night-
Being the record of a singular adventure of that remarkable detective genius, Hamilton Cleek, The Man of the Forty Faces, once known to the police as "The Vanishing Cracksman."
A man mysteriously murdered at night, the figures 2x4 x 1x2 scrawled on his shirt front, a broken shoe-polish label beside him. Cleek solved it. Can you?

The Riddle of the Frozen Flame-
Vast gold robberies--a murder of which a nobleman stands accused, with jealousy for the motive--these apparently unrelated mysteries give scope for Cleek's most ingenious solutions.

Cleek: The Man of the Forty Faces-
An ex-cracksman turned Scotland Yard detective, Cleek's slim and faultlessly dressed form is topped by an india-rubber-like face, of which he has remarkable control. With the power to distort and transform his visage and mimic any mannerism he desires, Cleek (with the assistance of his cockney assistant "Dollops") makes a super natural detective! Published in the U.S. in 1918 as Cleek, the Master Detective.

Cleek of Scotland Yard-
Cleek is a detective as remarkable, though not so convincingly drawn, as Sherlock Holmes. He has, however, the prime quality of always being in an apparently hopeless tangle of circumstances, and he has also the genius of getting out.

The Riddle of the Purple Emperor-
As excitingly improbable a detective story as ever baffled and allured the breathless reader, The Riddle of the Purple Emperor has all the thrills of adventure and murder and hate and love embroidered on the groundwork of a plot as precisely worked out as a problem in mathematics.
