This month we feature an Ellery Queen pastiche by Dale C. Andrews. The third entry in a series begun on the heels of the Ellery Queen Centenary Symposium at Columbia University in 2005, the story brings an elderly Ellery Queen, still at the height of his deductive powers, out of retirement. The first story in this series earned an EQMM Readers Award scroll and a nomination for the Barry Award.
