The Queens are intrigued when a grisly murder mars a small town’s Christmas It’s Christmas in Chicago, and Inspector Richard Queen is enjoying a busman’s holiday at a conference on gangland violence—but his son, amateur sleuth Ellery, is bored silly. Until, that is, Ellery reads of an unusual killing in rural Arroyo, West Virginia: A schoolmaster has been found beheaded and crucified. Ellery hustles his father into his roadster and heads east, since there is nothing he’d like better for Christmas than a juicy, gruesome puzzle. When the Queens arrive in Arroyo, they learn that the victim was an eccentric atheist, but not the sort to make enemies. What initially looks to be the work of a sadistic cult turns out to be something far more sinister. In the months ahead, more victims will turn up all over the world—all killed in the same horrifying manner. It will take several bodies before Queen divines the clue that unlocks the mystery of the Christmas crucifixion.

Il quindicenne Roberto è appassionato di letteratura e, sulle orme di un antenato scrittore, si cimenta nella stesura di romanzi gialli. Apprendista nella scrittura come nella vita, il ragazzo sperimenta insieme ai suoi compagni di scuola i primi approcci con l’alcol, la droga e il sesso. Molto sensibile e dotato di un acuto spirito di osservazione, vive quotidianamente il contrasto fra l’instabilità della Bolivia degli anni Ottanta, segnata da razzismo e disuguaglianza sociale, e la vita ovattata di un figlio dell’alta borghesia di Cochabamba: l’esclusivo istituto cattolico dove studia e le dinamiche familiari sono per lui una campana di vetro fatta di ipocrisia, e il solo modo per uscirne è la creazione di altri mondi, come Río Fugitivo, cittadina immaginaria in cui ambienta i suoi racconti. Ma per Roberto scrivere non significa solo evadere dalla realtà: significa cercare la propria identità, provare a decifrare il mondo e a stabilirvi un ordine. Così, quando si trova di fronte a una misteriosa scomparsa, il ragazzo inizia a ripercorrere tutta la vicenda a ritroso. Lo scopo, certo, è fare chiarezza, ma come non cogliere l’occasione per delineare il tanto ambito delitto perfetto? Nel corso di questa personale indagine Roberto si accorgerà però che il confine fra realtà e finzione è labile, finendo per imparare a proprie spese quanto facilmente verità e immaginazione influiscano l’una sull’altra. Come molti grandi romanzi, Río Fugitivo si espande oltre i confini del genere: è al tempo stesso un giallo, un romanzo di formazione e un romanzo a sfondo politico, ma soprattutto è un libro intriso dell’umanità, della passione e della fantasia che contraddistinguono la migliore letteratura sudamericana.

Ellery Queen ha deciso: è il momento di dare l'addio al crimine. Ormai non ci sono più gli assassini di una volta, nei delitti non si riconosce più quell'estro, quell'ingegno che rendeva interessanti le indagini. O forse no? Forse vale la pena di dedicare un po' di attenzione al caso dei cugini York...

A murder in a crowded theater leaves a pack of suspects, but only one clue. 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.

Inspector Richard Queen finally gets a murder case he can call his own When unmarried women get into trouble, A. Burt Finner is waiting at the hospital to save them. This greasy-lipped fat man knows all about babies: how to change them, how to feed them—and how to sell them to the highest bidder. He buys low, getting them from their distressed mothers just a few hours after birth, and sells high to millionaires who are unable to have children of their own. When one of these infants dies just a few months after its sale, the new family is shocked by the tragedy. Only the newborn’s nurse recognizes the death as murder. The nurse reaches out to Inspector Richard Queen, the recently retired father of the legendary amateur sleuth Ellery. Given that his son is out of town, the inspector leaps at a chance to solve this chilling mystery on his own—only to find himself falling head over heels for the baby’s caretaker.
