Overview

2013 Malice Domestic Agatha Award Nominee

"What a treasure! . . . literally a blow-by-blow account of the creation of three of the strongest Queen novels." Francis M. Nevins, two-time Edgar winner

"A superlative book . . . jaw-dropping revelations." William Link, creator of Columbo

The writing team of Frederic Dannay and Manfred B. Lee (better known by their joint byline of Ellery Queen) produced some of the most ambitious mystery novels of the mid-20th Century. Yet their relationship was acrimonious, marred by pain, financial and professional dependency and mistrust. Here, culled from the Dannay archives by author and dramatist Joseph Goodrich, is the selected correspondence of these two volatile men during a period of their most important creative achievements. With a Foreword by longtime television producer-writer William Link (Columbo, Ellery Queen, Murder, She Wrote).
