Comments & Further Information

A US paperback edition in good condition for its age.   There is some quite heavy tanning to the pages but the book remains is eminently readable. There is a long, diagonal crease that runs from the top right-hand corner to the bottom left-hand corner of the front cover. The book spine is rubbed at the extremities and there is some slight damage to the base of the book spine.  The covers are generally rubbed/chipped and are rather grubby.  The flash in the photo is making them look cleaner than they actually are!

SYNOPSIS:  “A triangle for murder. These are the people who formed the triangle:

Howard Van Horn a young sculptor suffering from strange attacks of amnesia. He goes in desperation to Ellery Queen with a baffling problem.

Diedrich Van Horn, Howard’s millionaire foster father. His money bought him a wife tailor-made to his specifications. He needed Ellery Queen too – but for a more sinister reason.

Sally, the young and beautiful wife. She came from the wrong side of the tracks but moved into the Van Horn mansion with complete assurance.

Ellery Queen finds a pattern of sins that leads irrevocably to murder. His solution is a spectacular one and provides the best surprise ending of the great detective’s career.”
