A lawyer murdered in the middle of a play's debut on Broadway and yet not a SINGLE witness. One of the best author's of the mystery genre and I always enjoyed how he challenged the reader to see if they had come up with the same answer at the point in the book when he... challenges you the reader. If you like locked room mysteries try John Dickson Carr or Carter Dickson.

I believe this is the first Ellery Queen story, and the Ellery is not the primary character or the story, his father is. The story takes great pains to walk through the process of investigation and deduction, almost to the point of excess, and the conclusion is logical and satisfactory, although the motive is something totally out of date and there for somewhat disappointing. The narrative is enjoyable and moves along well, there are many memorable characters and locations. It is very much a product of it's time, and the one thing that stood out as far fetched to me was the crime itself, but I suppose you should expect that from a classic who-dunit. The Nook version was generally a good conversion, with only one or two typos, probably due to the OCR process.

But it is so extremely gay that I'm sure the nom de plume of "Queen" was chosen for that very reason.
