A somewhat new type of Ellery Queen mystery, with a faster-paced set up (in Hollywood, where Queen is supposed to be working -- and chaffing at inaction). The story revolves around the notorious feud of the picture world -- the sensational reconciliation -- and a double murder. Queen to the rescue, and by his usual deductive methods he finds the murderer -- too late -- and spots the brains behind it all. Not too difficult to guess, but good reading. And there is none of the abstract highbrow patter which has begun to bore some of his readers.
