OK, but should get to the point

I've listened to many audio books in the murder mystery genre, and this is my first Ellery Queen.
The story was good, the reading great. But I found the writing of the story unnecessarily long winded. It may have been the style in 1933, but to me it was like taking an hour and a half to watch 60 minutes.

Author Bio: Ellery Queen

Author Bio: Ellery Queen

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.
