Publisher's Summary

John Lovering Benedict had more than most men - more money, more mansions, more cars, but most of all more women, including three ex-wives with little in common but their extraordinary physiques. For Ellery Queen the question was which one of them had bashed in Benedict's skull with a hunk of iron statuary? The clues were many…but puzzling. All had been planted at the scene of the crime, but by whom, and for what purpose? And who was the last woman in John Benedict's life?

    "Not Queen's finest hour"

    I read a review from someone who gave this one away (without the Spoiler Alert tag!) so I knew from the start whodunit. So here we go: Spoiler Alert. The rest of this review gives things away!
    Sigh. I read it, therefore, to see if one could guess the outcome from the clues. I'm sure it would have been harder to guess when this book was written, but today...oh, it was so obvious!
    That being said, I was expecting worse. Yes, there were a few digs at homosexuals being "not normal" and even mentally unbalanced, but it wasn't overplayed. And bear in mind, at the time homosexuality was still considered a mental illness. And Queen does seem to blur the lines, equating homosexuality with transvestitism. Not all queers, Queen, like to dress in women's clothes!
    I was pleasantly surprised that we returned to Wrightsville for this caper. And Mark Peckham still is my favorite Queen reader. His Inspector Queen is wonderful! And, like I said, I was expecting the story to be much worse from what I'd read. Still...not my favorite Queen, by a long shot.

    "Great Ellery Queen"

    A superb mystery placed back in Wrightsville. Interesting and exaggerated characters. A who done it that will keep you guessing until the last chapter.
