In the merry month of May, Ellery Queen made a trek to Gettysburg to witness an annual celebration - and an annual murder. February found the ingenious Ellery locked in a furious battle of wits with a dead US president. These are but two of the 12 appointments with crime that make up Queen's baffling calendar of conundrums. Each elegant enigma ticks off all the surprise and excitement that have made Queen the dean of American detective fiction.
Stories include: "The Inner Circle," "The President's Half Dime", "The Ides of Michael Magoon", "The Emperor's Dice", "The Gettysburg Bugle", "The Medical Finger", "The Fallen Angel", "The Needle's Eye", "The Three Rs", "The Dead Cat", "The Telltale Bottle", and "The Dauphin's Doll".

Overall, a pretty good collection of short stories with more hits than misses. Each story is set during a different month, beginning with January, and several of them deal with holidays. Traber Burns is pretty good at narrating Queen.
