The Scarlet Letters Audiobook

The Scarlet Letters: Ellery Queen Detective, Book 24

Ellery had a simple case. A few days of discreet snooping, some choice advice, and the inimitable sleuth would blithely restore domestic harmony to the millionaire couple Dirk and Martha Lawrence. Then came the scarlet letters. And finally the cryptic clue, scrawled in a murdered man’s blood. A simple case? Unless Ellery did some super-fast sleuthing, he’d have nothing to show but a very scarlet face. The case will drag him all over New York as he hunts for the truth.

    "An Interesting Twist"

    An interesting twist of a detective novel. It shows great literary style. It does not have some of the regular Ellery Queen cast, but showcases some lesser characters. Well worth the listen for mystery fans.

    "Lost interest"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Loved Ellery Queen when I was a teenager, but had no connection with the characters.
