Read full description of the books A Study in Terror:Sherlock Holmes: the greatest fictional detective of all time!
Jack the Ripper: the most notorious undiscovered criminal in history!
Told by Doctor Watson(who else?), this is the inside story of the most intriguing match in the annals of crime and mystery, brilliantly imagined by Sherlock Holmes' finest successor: Ellery Queen.
One of the earliest and rarest Holmes pastiches, now published for the first time, 'A Study In Terror' is a novelization of the classic film of the same name encased in an Ellery Queen mystery. It offers a startling answer to the ever-fascinating question:
Who Was Jack The Ripper?
Read information about the authoraka Barnaby Ross.
"Ellery Queen" was a pen name created and shared by two cousins, Frederic Dannay (1905-1982) and Manfred B. Lee (1905-1971), as well as the name of their most famous detective. Born in Brooklyn, they spent forty two years writing, editing, and anthologizing under the name, gaining a reputation as the foremost American authors of the Golden Age "fair play" mystery.
Although eventually famous on television and radio, Queen's first appearance came in 1928 when the cousins won a mystery-writing contest with the book that would eventually be published as The Roman Hat Mystery. Their character was an amateur detective who used his spare time to assist his police inspector father in solving baffling crimes. Besides writing the Queen novels, Dannay and Lee cofounded Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, one of the most influential crime publications of all time. Although Dannay outlived his cousin by nine years, he retired Queen upon Lee's death.
Several of the later "Ellery Queen" books were written by other authors, including Jack Vance, Avram Davidson, and Theodore Sturgeon.
