There was an old woman who owned a mammoth shoe company and was worth many millions of dollars. She also had one of the most dysfunctional families imaginable. But when her children began to get killed, it did not make any sense. On one level, the explanation seemed obvious, but surely it could not be as easy as that? As Ellery Queen endeavors to solve the case, he tries to make sense of a family that defies rationality.

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, 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.
