Good book and performance

This story flowed well and was done by a narrator who did mix up the voices. The end was a good wrap up and led well to next novel the four of hearts

Enjoyed this with a slightly screwball ending

This was fun as the authors kept the plot tight, the inevitable romance happy, the plotline zippy ,
and the slightly screwball plot with twists dancing like Fred & Ginger. Enjoyed it like the masterpiece it was ....

A Great Read

In classic Ellery style, the sleuth goes incognito to investigate a murder where everyone lies. It us a fun stroll down a curvaceous lane.

"Devil may care" in Hollywood

This is another enjoyable mystery. I love how Queen explains it all in the end. It is so much fun to try and guess who the culprit is. I love these mysteries!
