[Read by Patrick Cullen]

When Gloria Guild, the singing ''Glory'' of the thirties and millionairess wife of count Carlos Armando, is murdered, she leaves only one clue: the word ''face'' written in her dying scrawl. Who or what is ''face''? Ellery and his father the Inspector, British agent Harry Burke, and Sergeant Velle all get involved. Ellery's search takes him from the Bowery to a way-out wedding before he arrives at a shocking conclusion.

About the Author:

ELLERY QUEEN is a pseudonym used by two American cousins from Brooklyn - Daniel Nathan, alias Frederic Dannay (1905-1982) and Manford (Emanuel) Lepofsky, alias Manfred Bennington Lee (1905-1971) - to write detective fiction. In a successful series of novels that covered 42 years, Ellery Queen served as both the author's name and that of the detective-hero. The cousins also co-founded and directed Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, generally considered one of the most influential English crime fiction magazines of the last sixty-five years. They were given the Grand Master Award for achievements in the field of the mystery story by the Mystery Writers of America in 1961.

Review:

''Technically faultless construction (one expects no less), admirable final twist and one lovely private joke for old-line Queen fans (as aren't we all?).'' --New York Times
