No Ellery here 25 Oct. 2013
By Neal J. Pollock - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is an unusual Ellery Queen book since Ellery isn't in the book (except as an occasional reference). Rather, his father, Richard Queen is the hero of the piece--but he's no longer a police inspector either--he's recently retired--but, of course, he keeps his hand in with this caper. He teams up with his new love interest, nurse Jessie Sherwood whose charge--an infant adopted by a wealthy family (Alton & Sarah Humffreys) dies when she is absent. The mystery revolves around the adoption itself, the death of the infant (accident or murder) and the consequences that follow. There is a major twist at the end, but I kind of guessed it beforehand, but there are a number of interesting and intriguing side issues that I didn't predict at all. I am a bit concerned with some of Richard's activities which struck me as a bit much and possibly out of character--but I've only read a few Queen mysteries so far. I did get a quote for my collection:

"Clever people are often so clever they're stupid." page 148
