A collection of Ellery Queen stories.
WHAT I LIKED
A few of the stories really stand out…Mind Over Matter with the death of a boxer just after a fight; The Inner Circle with a combination investment fund and deadpool; The Dauphin’s Doll with the planned theft of a doll collection; and the Three Widows with one of them slowly being poisoned. The Glass-domed Clock and Man Bites Dog are also pretty well-done.
WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE
A few places where the story creates a red herring through vague wording, but not obnoxious.
