Sintesi dell'editore

Ellery Queen is persuaded to accompany an old friend and sculptor to his ancestral home when the latter arrives at Ellery's house covered in blood and unable to remember anything from the past few weeks. Once there, tensions erupt and foul play results in the murder of one of the household's members. Among the many transgressions Ellery will uncover are adultery, blackmail, and deceit.

A little too many words for the detective!

This is more a novel than a detective story. I like the way these writers think, but this one was too much for me.
It starts out with HVH calling his "friend" Ellery Queen for help and advice. It goes on from there into a most bizarre set of circumstances. As the story progresses, these circumstances get so twisted and involved that I, frankly, got tired of the whole thing. This is only the first HALF of the novel.
When the narrator (the excellent, Robert Fass) announced "Part Two", I was flabbergasted. I thought that the book was over. Instead, we are led back through the whole story to yet another conclusion. I have to admit that it had me hooked. So, I had to find out what there was to discuss, it turned out to be another long involved explanation of the crime.
Lest I go on too long, I felt the story was far too long!

probably the least enjoyable of the series to date

the overall a lovely story that's well thought out it's one of the rare if only times when the plot is obnoxiously obvious and overall I couldn't care less about any of the characters or their fates.

Wasn't too bad for Wrightsville #3

Sometimes EQ can drag at the end but Wrightsville is different but not necessarily better.This book was different but it moved well & only at the very end did it hit a pothole.
