Found: Murder mystery on a Mountain em Name that Book (Janeiro 15)


Re-read after a long time, remembered it as one of my favorite Queen conundrums.
The mystery holds up, but my how the times have changed.
I actually don't like Ellery, and his relationship with his father is also not one I care for, but the puzzles are fairly done and usually ingenious.

While more entertaining than "The Roman Hat Mystery" (the first EQ book, and one that I checked out from the Rexburg library and struggled to get through before returning it to said library in disgust), this fourth entry in the series is still heavy on exposition and light on action. The hospital setting, as well as the corpse discovered on the operating table, are intriguing, but there is so much interviewing and tiresome things (like thirty pages of anti-climactic end-story), that they kill any desire to find out who dunnit. Tiresome as well is the introduction by one "J.J. McC" (a feature/gimmick in the early books), where the individual attempts to drum up enthusiasm for the impending adventure, but which comes off more as a lame effort to make the Queen's out to be more than they really are. The inclusion of manservant Djuna is another wasted effort, the Queen's adoration of him coming off as condescending, maudlin, and a little weird (when you get right down to it). Thankfully, Djuna disappears, a few novels into the series.… (mais)

While the book is very much a product of its time- i.e., 1954 small-town America, the red scare, etc.- it's also highly entertaining. Though it's an Ellery Queen book, neither Ellery or his father (Inspector Queen) are present. Instead we get to watch Judge Shinn and a war vet named Johnny try to unravel the truth behind the murder of a local artist. After a battle between a local mob and the state police over the fate of a transient accused of the killing, the judge hatches a plan to conduct a phony trial in order to avoid a lynching and get the accused killer out of town (and on to a fair trial).
And this is where the story gets good. In an abrupt change of tone (from the violent and suspenseful first half), a healthy dose of humor infuses the sham trial, as one rule of trial procedure after another gets steamrolled in an effort to buy more time for the accused. The trial's explosive finish, the ensuing chase, and the final solution keep the story moving to a satisfying conclusion.
Some readers dislike all the sermonizing about the "goodness" of small-town American folk, etc., but if you take the story for what it is, it's highly entertaining.
