Summary

Summary

It was a script that could only have come from Hollywood: the wedding of two superstars after a scandal-filled courtship … a wild trip by private plane to a hideaway … a deadly double overdose of drugs …

These corpses weren’t play-acting. Once again Ellery was cast in the role of master detective, as he found nothing was quite what it seemed in the never-never land of moviedom—except sudden, violent death.

Here is a grand mystery with an extremely ingenious, intricate, and watertight plot. The setting is Hollywood, and something is happening all the time. It’s fantastic and uproarious, and full of Hollywood patter at its lushest. It’s expertly solved, with an effective extra turnover at the end resulting in a surprising and thrilling finish.

Author Bio: Ellery Queen

Ellery Queen is a pseudonym used by two American cousins from Brooklyn—Daniel Nathan, alias Frederic Dannay (1905–1982), and Manford (Emanuel) Lepofsky, alias Manfred Bennington Lee (1905–1971)—to write detective fiction. In a successful series of novels that covered forty-two years, Ellery Queen served as both the authors’ name and that of the detective-hero. The cousins also cofounded and directed Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine, one of the most influential English crime-fiction magazines of the twentieth century. They were given the Grand Master Award for achievements in the field of the mystery story by the Mystery Writers of America in 1961.
