With three likely suspects and a pelthora of clues, Ellery Queen must catch a killer.
John Lovering Benedict had more than most men - more money, more mansions, more cars, but most of all more women, including three ex-wives with little in common but their extraordinary physiques. For Ellery Queen the question was which one of them had bashed in Benedict's skull with a hunk of iron statuary? The clues were many . . . but puzzling. All had been planted at the scene of the crime, but by whom, and for what purpose? And who was the last woman in John Benedict's life?
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
While not as good as the classic middle period Queen, which include the very best mystery stories ever written, this is one of the better, and more surprising, of the later Queen mysteries, with an ending that is particularly satisfying, whether you pick up on the frequent hints or not.
This book is near the end of the Ellery Queen writings. I am an Ellery Queen fan and was saddened to see the author of this book add language and behavior that was demeaning to the characters. I actually placed the book into my garbage can after a few chapters.
The cd was blank when we received it, nothing on it.
