Trick I—The first thing to vanish is a worthless doorstop. Then, in the twinkling of an eye, goes its rich and elderly owner. And, for the grand finale, both reappear—each as dead as the other. Trick II—From the House of Darkness issues more bafflement. In total darkness and from a distance of twelve feet, four bullets are pumped within an inch of each other into a spectator’s back—a feat utterly impossible to perform yet brazenly and undeniably done. Trick III—The pièce de résistance. This time it’s an entire house, a real house, a solid house, which Ellery Queen had been in only the day before … vanished from the face of the earth. And in its place emerges one of the most incredible conundrums ever to face the master crime solver. Encores—The New Adventures of Ellery Queen is a classic collection of eight short mysteries and a remarkable short novel. First published in1940, it has sold more than one million copiesand continues to be “as good as they come” (NewYork Times).

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.
