Publisher's Summary

Could murder really be hereditary? Davy Fox certainly thinks so. When he was only a boy, his father, Bayard Fox,was convicted of murdering Davy's mother in the small town of Wrightsville. Now that Davy has grown up and returned home from the war, he fears that it is onlya matter of time until he kills his own wife. But could he really do such athing? Desperate to find out the truth, Davy's wife, Linda, calls on Ellery Queen to investigate the twelve-year-old murder of Jessica Fox.

Another Wrightville visit

Ellery returns to Wrightsville to solve a 12 year old case. The Wrightsville cases always seem to have a cloud of despair hanging over them. You get the feeling that you're not going to like the solution. This one contains a lot of the classic Queen tricks, with loads of red herrings and even a sort of false solution, followed by the true.

noice

What can I say? Another fanominal Ellery Queen. I prefer the ones that take place in NYC, but still very good.

Wrightsville #2

The Wrightsville Ellery Queens are my favorites. Some of the other books suffer from extensive logical analysis, early examples of analysis paralysis. But due to continuing characters and small village setting, these books are more cozy and present a more 3 dimensional Ellery. Moreover, the books ooze authentic post war atmosphere of the 40s and early 50s.

Pretty good story execution & ending

Sometimes the story can be overwhelmed by an overly complicated but necessary ending. This one had a interesting ending even if I wasn't in love with it.

good read

struggled with this one a bit, it was very slow to get to the crux of the story.
