The Adventure of the Murdered Moths
                             and Other Radio Mysteries (2005)

The best stories from the classic radio show featuring Ellery Queen as detective. Contains: The Last Man Club, Napoleon's Razor, The Bad Boy, The March of Death, The Haunted Cave, The Lost Child, The Black Secret, The Dying Scarecrow (1 hour version), Woman in Black, Forgotten Men, The Man Who Could Double the Size of Diamonds, The Dark Cloud, Mr. Short and Mr. Long, The Murdered Moths.

From 1939 until 1948, Dannay and (mainly) Lee wrote the hugely popular radio mystery show, The Adventures of Ellery Queen, which like some of the EQ books stopped the action toward the end and challenged the audience to deduce whodunit. From the more than 350 surviving scripts, fourteen of the most challenging were chosen: The case of the Tontine whose members die off one by one; The disappearance of Napoleon's Razor on a cross-country railroad train; The case that Sherlock Holmes failed to solve; The strangling in a haunted cave with only the victim s footprints leading to the corpse; A dying message which seems to name all the suspects; The clue of the dead moth; and 8 other extraordinary mysteries. This book is published in honor of the centennial of the births of Lee and Dannay, and (in the fictional world of EQ), the centennial of Ellery himself.

The limited collector's edition will have an additional script in a separate chapbook -- one of the mini (10-minute) scripts Ellery Queen did for The Kate Smith Hour.
