French's department store was famous for the rare merchandise it offered its elite clientele. But no one there could be proud of its latest exclusive window display: the bloodstained corpse of the owner's wife. Ellery Queen and his father, Inspector Richard Queen, soon discover that this palace of commerce is a viper's nest of fear, jealousy, suspicion, and hatred, where love is cheap and the price of honor marked down. But worst of all is the mysterious mocking mastermind who is out to turn the glittering store into a bargain basement of murder.

I first read these books 60+ years ago so this has been an indulgence in nostalgia.
While much seems dated, after ninety years the basic plot is still timely. So much
for the war on drugs.
I was concerned about listening to the book and were it available would have preferred
to read it again. The narrator does a good reading but sounds too old for Ellery.
There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
