There were three deaths before ELLERY QUEEN was called in on the case
But that was only the beginning. Soon there was another "death," then
and another ... until MURDER HAD STRUCK SEVEN TIMES.
The most diabolic killer Ellery Queen had ever known was on the loose
... AND HE LEFT NO CLUES!
- Luke MacCaby - A "heart-attack" killed Wrightsville's Town Hermit and
revealed that he had left a fortune of $4,000,000!
- Johan Spencer Hart, The Wealthiest Man in Town, committed "Suicide"
and was discovered to have been penniless!
- Tom Anderson, The Town Drunk, "disappeared", leaving only his hat and
coat at the edge of a cliff!
