In these rippingshort stories, the mystery genre’s greatest sleuth shows his chops. For Ellery Queen, there is no puzzle that reason cannotsolve. In his time, he has faced down killers, thugs, and thieves, protectedonly by the might of his brain—and the odd bit of timely intervention by hisfather, a burly New York police inspector. But when a university professor asksQueen to teach a class, the detective finds there are people whom reason cannottouch: college students. Queen’s adventure on campus is only the first of this incomparablecollection of short mysteries. In these pages, he tangles with a violent bookthief, an assassin who targets acrobats, and New York’s only cleanly shavenbearded lady. Criminals everywhere fear him, whether they work in mansions orback alleys. No mystery is too difficult for the man with the golden brain.

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.
