A novella and eight stories starring America’s most clever detective

Is it possible for a man to lift himself off the ground by his shoelaces and fly away? Can a water buffalo transform itself into a little boy? What is science to make of a dead man climbing out of his coffin, escaping his tomb . . . and breaking into song? Such incidents seem impossible, but stranger things have happened at the home of old Sylvester Mayhew. When Ellery Queen, the world-famous amateur detective, is called to Mayhew’s ramshackle old mansion, he expects to be investigating an ordinary hoax. Instead, he finds murder.

The novella The Lamp of God is vintage Ellery Queen—puzzling, atmospheric, and utterly delightful. Paired with eight short stories, including “Man Bites Dog” and “Long Shot,” it is simply irresistible.
