Overview

Leslie Gibson was a wealthy, beautiful, seventeen-year-old brat out for kicks at any price. And Leslie had decided that Reid Rance, adventurer and travel guide extraordinaire, was just the man to show her the hot spots of Mexico. But touring led to trouble with a capital T, and Reid was soon minus one debutante, plus several unwanted corpses, and desperately wanted by Mexican and American police as well as the Mexican underground. Could Reid evade the cops and rescue Leslie from her underground abductors before time ran out for them both?"

Queen, Ellery

Ellery Queen was a pen name created and shared by two cousins, Frederic Dannay (1905 1982) and Manfred B. Lee (1905 1971), as well as the name of their most famous detective. Born in Brooklyn, they spent forty-two years writing, editing, and anthologizing under the name, gaining a reputation as the foremost American authors of the Golden Age fair play mystery.Although eventually famous on television and radio, Queen s first appearance came in 1928, when the cousins won a mystery-writing contest with the book that would eventually be published as "The Roman Hat Mystery". Their character was an amateur detective who uses his spare time to assist his police inspector uncle in solving baffling crimes. Besides writing the Queen novels, Dannay and Lee cofounded "Ellery Queen s Mystery Magazine", one of the most influential crime publications of all time. Although Dannay outlived his cousin by nine years, he retired Queen upon Lee s death.
