Summary

On a seaside vacation, Ellery Queen is ensnared in a trio of strange crimes.
Spanish Cape is a dramatic promontory, its rocky cliff stopped with a picturesque hacienda. This isolated spot belongs to millionaire Walter Godfrey and it should be a peaceful family getaway - but one summer evening, Rosa Godfrey argues with her uncle David as he tries to convince her not to run away with one of their guests, the roguish John Marco. Suddenly, a one-eyed gunman appears out of the twilight. He seems to mistake David for John, and forces the pair to the mainland, where he clubs David on the head and locks Rosa in an empty vacation cottage. The next day, Rosa is rescued by the renowned sleuth Ellery Queen, who had come to the coast for a holiday. For a moment, it seems her luck has changed, but then the universe delivers another crushing blow. John has been found stone dead and stark naked. This will not be the first working vacation for the unfailingly logical Ellery Queen, but to unravel the mystery of the undressed man, he will have to make sense of what happened on the worst night of Rosa Godfrey's life.

Irritating

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

no one

What was most disappointing about Ellery Queen’s story?

I found the commentry irritating, Ellery Queen a poor imitation of Sherlock Holmes and not very clever. The detective's attitude and approach was unbelievable, it was embarrasing to listen to.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No

Loved it

As always I was surprised by the ending. In Holmes fashion, Ellery Queen explains it so it sounds so very simple.
