[Read by Scott Harrison]

The second novel in the popular detective series featuring Ellery Queen.

French's department store was famous for the rare merchandise it offered its elite clientele. But no one there could be proud of its latest exclusive window display: the bloodstained corpse of the owner's wife.

Ellery Queen and his father, Inspector Richard Queen, soon discover that this palace of commerce is a viper's nest of fear, jealousy, suspicion, and hatred, where love is cheap and the price of honor marked down. But worst of all is the mysterious mocking mastermind who is out to turn the glittering store into a bargain basement of murder.

About the Author:

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, generally considered 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.

Review:

“A new Ellery Queen book has always been something to look forward to for many years now.” —Agatha Christie “Ellery Queen is the American detective story.” —Anthony Boucher, author of Nine Times Nine
