A Hal Keen Mystery Story

The Hal Keen series was a entry in the already crowded boys fiction field of the 1930s. What makes the Hal Keen books different is that they are considerably darker than other series. People are not only killed, they are murdered. The stories have a noir feel even though they are not urban in setting. This story is a good one involving a lighthouse off the New England coast, a "mentally defective" youth and a notorious event that once occurred at the lighthouse. [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Fitzhugh, Percy Keese

Author Image

Percy Keese Fitzhugh (1876-1950) was an American author. His first known work, The Goldenrod Story Book was published in 1906. The bulk of his work, having a Boy Scouting theme, revolves around the fictional town of Bridgeboro, New Jersey. Characters included Tom Slade, Pee-wee Harris, Roy Blakely, and Westy Martin. Fitzhugh's Scouting based books were very popular with children and adults. His characters became so real to his readers that it was not uncommon for Percy to receive fan mail addressed to the characters themselves. In the 1930's, he began writing the Hal Keen Mystery Series (10 titles) under the pseudonym Hugh Lloyd. They were followed by another mystery series - Skippy Dare - (3 titles). Neither of these series achieved the popularity of his Scout work.
