Overview

Publishers Weekly: "Considering the wealth of professional and personal information, it's tempting to call this definitive." Francis M. Nevins, twice winner of the prestigious Edgar award for critical studies of Cornell Woolrich and Ellery Queen, delivers an unsurpassable work on "all things Queen." With an extensive bibliography, detailed histories of Ellery Queen in books, movies, radio and television, and reminiscences by both Fred Dannay and Manfred B. Lee who formed the writing partnership that created Ellery Queen, the book provides the most complete account available of how two Brooklyn cousins reshaped the modern detective novel. With 12 pages of photos and an index.
