|he Last Man Club (1941)
$ 100 000,payable to the final survivor of the strange Last Man Club. It was a wonder they didn't start killing each other off..and then they did. Plunging Ellery Queen and Nikki Porter into a challenging chase after an invulnerable killer!
Nobody had any reason to
want Peter Jordan dead - yet the ailing millionaire sent Ellery a desperate
call for help... and Ellery and Nikki found him murdered! No motive... no
clues... For once Ellery Queen was bogged down - until he found a very
important wad of chewing gum!
Again based on a
radio play by Ellery Queen. But aside the leading role no real Queen.
First appeared as one of the Better Little Books
in 1941 and published by Pyramid books together with
The Adventure of the
Ellery's address is given as "212-A West 87th Street"
beside being an obvious
referral to a certain Baker Street address but also a one
off in the Queen canon.
