TEN DAYS' WONDER

Ellery Queen, sentimentally concerned and mentally nonplussed in his return to Wrightsville, intervenes in the household of majestic, magnate Van Horn, his amnesiac son, Howard, and the much too young girl, Sally, who had come between them. Blackmail, theft, and eventually murder provide full play for his psychiatric insight, deductive intuition, but it is an anagram which returns him to the scene of the crime and the true criminal a year after the case is closed. Enigmatic entertainment which proceeds with a smoothness suspiciously synthetic, but nonetheless masterful.
