Synopsis: [MP3-CD audiobook format in Vinyl case. *NOTE: The MP3-CD format requires a compatible audio CD player.]

[Read by Mark Peckham]

When a diabolical mystery comes calling, Ellery Queen is on the case. -- Once upon an evil time, there was a wicked old woman with a mammoth shoe company worth many millions of dollars, a henpecked husband, and six miserable children. Then one day death came visiting the vast Potts mansion -- and began claiming its inhabitants one by one. It was then that Ellery Queen was invited to sup on this nightmare brew of diabolical murder and baffling mystery -- in a case that made the most horrific crimes in his entire career seem like fairy tales. As he endeavors to solve the case, he tries to make sense of this 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.

Book Description HarperPerennial, New York, 1992. Softcover. Book Condition: Good. Reprint Edition.. 248 pages. Softcover. Good condition. FICTION. Cornelia Potts is a wicked old witch of a woman with millions of dollars, a henpecked husband, and six miserable children. Every life she touches turns to sheer hell. Then, one by one, the inhabitants of the vast, grotesque Potts mansion are visited by death, while Cornelia watches with delight. Ellery Queen is invited as a guest for dinner and finds himself supervising a duel between Thurlow Potts, a fat little fellow with body of an aging debauchee and mind of a perverted child, and his half brother Tobert, who is handsome, brilliant and successful. First Queen makes certain that both guns are loaded with blanks, then he waits for the joke to reach its climax. Instead, to his horror, one of the brothers is really shot. And he realizes he is now hunting a most deadly and cunning murderer. "Verdict: Suspects and clues all over the place - so many that even Ellery Queen is almost stumped. One of the very best Ellery Queen mysteries." - The New York Times (Key Words: Murder Mysteries, Fiction, Ellery Queen). book. Bookseller Inventory # 67239X1
