Publisher's summary

The victim had lived two lives, but a single knife thrust ended both of them. The trail of suspicion led into the guilt-edged world of the beautiful people - and climaxed in a vicious courtroom battle that ended with a shattering verdict. It seemed that for the first time Ellery had met his match - until the sleuth blended his usual impeccable logic with a most unusual fling.…

Someone “pinc-nez” me, I think I’m having a nightm’

I’ve complained about this before. When you read a book for yourself and come across something / a term, let’s say, which you don’t know, it is relatively common, amongst those who value knowledge and despise ignorance, to rectify the lapse and look the thing up.
Now, when you’re reading a book for an audience.... it is effectively REQUIRED that you do so. After all it’s your responsibility to pronounce the word or phrase with the utmost accuracy.

The blatant failure to do so... and lack of knowledge or thoroughness to catch aforementioned during final editing... can go very far into ruining a “performance” in entirety. In fact I could barely call such a charade a “performance” at all. It’s just some dude carelessly “reading” a book. NOT “performing” it, by any stretch of the imagination.

Brilliant!

Good performer! He only mispronounced a few words! Sgt VEE LEE, if you please! Mispronounced words make me crazy! However, reading a book with voices must be difficult, so forgivable! Love the Ellery Queen books! Thank you!
