Looking for trouble,
Ellery Queen descends on a small town.
At the tail end of the long summer of 1940, there is
nowhere in the country more charming than Wrightsville. The Depression has
abated, and for the first time in years the city is booming. There is hope in
Wrightsville, but Ellery Queen has come looking for death.
The mystery author is hoping for fodder for a novel,
and he senses the corruption that lurks beneath the apple pie façade. He rents
a house owned by the town’s first family, whose three daughters star in most of
the local gossip. One is fragile, left at the altar three years prior, never to
recover. Another is engaged to the city’s rising political star, an upright man
who’s already boring her. And then there’s Lola, the divorced, bohemian black
sheep. Together, they make a volatile combination. Once he sees the ugliness in
Wrightsville, Queen sits back—waiting for the crime to come to him. Download and start listening now!
