What to expect

In the merry month of May, Ellery Queen made a trek to Gettysburg to witness an annual celebration—and an annual murder. February found the ingenious Ellery locked in a furious battle of wits with a dead US president. These are but two of the twelve appointments with crime that make up Queen's baffling calendar of conundrums. Each elegant enigma ticks off all the surprise and excitement that have made Queen the dean of American detective fiction.
