Overview

Ellery Queen and Sherlock Holmes match wits to reveal the identity of history’s most infamous killer

Ellery Queen and Sherlock Holmes are the undisputed masters of analytical deduction—their talents and methods strikingly, almost uncannily,
alike. Through the strange interlocking of events past and present, the two celebrated detectives meet to focus their razor-sharp intellects—and their brilliant powers of observation—on the mystery of … Jack the Ripper.

History’s most depraved murderer, Jack the Ripper’s victims were the whores of Whitechapel. Lurking in narrow, fog-shrouded alleys, he crept forth night after night to murder—and mutilate. Eluding Scotland Yard’s most heroic efforts to track him down, the Ripper continued to satisfy his unnatural appetites, unrestrained—and unidentified! Can Queen and Holmes unmask the notorious killer?

Uniquely imaginative, A
Study in Terror
is a masterpiece of mystery and suspense.

Meet the Author

Ellery Queen is a pseudonym used by two American cousins from Brooklyn—Daniel Nathan, alias Frederic Dannay (1905–1982), and Manford (Emanuel) Lepofsky, alias Manfred Bennington Lee (1905–1971)—to write detective fiction. In a successful series of novels that covered forty-two years, Ellery Queen served as both the authors’ name and that of the detective-hero. The cousins also cofounded and directed Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine, one of the most influential English crime-fiction magazines of the twentieth century. They were given the Grand Master Award for achievements in the field of the mystery story by the Mystery Writers of America in 1961.
