About this title:

Synopsis: Frederic Dannay and Manfred B. Lee, who wrote under the pseudonym Ellery Queen; and whose fictional sleuth was also named Ellery Queen, were probably the most important American mystery writers from 1929 until the early 1970's. Ellery Queen is the American detective story, wrote Anthony Boucher and he meant not only their detective novels, but also their critical writings, their editing, and their appearance on television and the radio. From 1939 until 1948, Lee and Dannay wrote a hugely popular radio mystery show,The Adventures of Ellery Queen, which like the EQ books stopped the action toward the end and challenged the audience to deduce whodunit. From the more than 350 surviving scripts, we have chosen fourteen of the most challenging: The case of the Tontine whose members die off one by one; The disappearance of Napoleon's Razor on a cross-country railroad train; The case that Sherlock Holmes failed to solve; The strangling in a haunted cave with only the victim s footprints leading to the corpse; A dying message which seems to name all the suspects; The clue of the dead moth; and 8 other extraordinary mysteries This book is published in honor of the centennial of the births of Lee and Dannay, and (in the fictional world of EQ), the centennial of Ellery himself.

From Booklist: It's always nice to see rare semiprecious gems revived: in this case, it is a compendium of Berkeley's detective stories featuring Roger Sheringham and Inspector Moresby from the 1930s. Echoes of Dorothy L. Sayers and P. G. Wodehouse waft through these stories, in their crisp language and period style. Berkeley, who founded a group of writers called the London Detection Club dedicated to providing readers with all the clues needed, writes masterful puzzles, but the stories are complex enough to allow multiple interpretations. When the stories are read together, certain themes--sly women, the use of poison, love gone awry--turn up too often, but the working out of the clues is good fun for fans of puzzle mysteries from the Golden Age. The title story is considered by genre historians to be among the greatest "fair-play" detective stories. Bibliophiles will be thrilled at the checklist, complete notes, and publishing history. A rare treat for Golden Age devotees. GraceAnne DeCandido
