Despite the dismal Broadway season, Gunplay continues to draw crowds. A gangland spectacle, it's packed to the gills with action, explosions, and gunfire. In fact, Gunplay is so loud that no one notices the killing of Monte Field. In a sold-out theater, Field is found dead partway through the second act, surrounded by empty seats. The police hold the crowd and call for the one man who can untangle this daring murder: Inspector Richard Queen. With the help of his son Ellery, a bibliophile and novelist whose imagination can solve any crime, the Inspector attacks this seemingly impenetrable mystery. Anyone in the theater could have killed the unscrupulous lawyer, and several had the motive. Only Ellery Queen, in his debut novel, can decipher the clue of the dead man's missing top hat.

At home in the snowy mountains of Utah. Who says you need to have a summer...
A true classic.
I would not change a thing. While it does not meet current ideas of political correctness, it is a great representation of the times in which it is set and was written.
The narrator does not go overboard with the vocal representations of the characters, but still manages to convey tone and intent.
Listened to it non-stop on a trip across Nevada from Utah to San Jose. Great listen!
If you enjoy the Ellery Queen method and don't mind a period piece that shows its age in places, you will enjoy this production.
