While the queen puzzles are first rate, the authors’ style is much more a matter of taste.

    Nine tales including a short novel bring ellery queen back from the pulps – and the tales are a lot of fun, though i suggest you don’t read them all at once – i did – since they all seem to have a basic structure –an interesting story involving ellery queen – several of these involve sports – baseball, boxing, horse racing – a crime – usually a murder or attempted murder – and the crime solved by ellery queen.

    Some of the stories have clues in the descriptions – look for voiced inaccurate assumptions based on these descriptions – while others are knowledge only ellery queen seems to have.

    Agatha christie is the undisputed champion of the traditional puzzle mystery, in which readers attempt to unravel the clues and solve the case along with the detective.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    As in almost all of the queen books, the detective in the “new adventures” stories is also named ellery queen.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Indeed, the baseball story was, for me, the most entertaining in the book, as ellery resents being pulled away from his box seat at the deciding game of the series to investigate a murder and has to solve the murder in a hurry so he can see the end of the game.

    Like agatha christie, dannay and lee were scrupulously fair in relating the stories, revealing (although often trying to mask the importance of) every bit of information the reader needs to solve the mystery.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Many of the stories in “new adventures” are more howdunits than whodunits, as ellery tries to figure out some seemingly impossible crimes, including two stories involving jewel robberies following which the stolen jewels seem to have completely vanished from sealed-off locations.

    Another story involves a shooting in a pitch-black funhouse in which the killer could not possibly have seen the target.
