    When Gloria Guild, the singing “Glory” of the 30s and millionaire 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.

    Any additional comments?

    A good bet for Ellery Queen fans and fans of noir-ish mystery more generally. Like many a mystery, this is a bit less fun when you already know the twist -- but it's classic Ellery Queen, complete with outsized characterizations, evocative imagery, and parlor-scene reveal. It's dated, of course, especially in its characterizations of women, but that's to be expected, and it's very much a classic tale of its time.

    The narration is fine. A bit stilted here and there, but all clear and appropriate for the material.

    Overall, recommended.
