From cons to kidnapping to murder, eighteen ingenious stories showcase the talents of “the prince of American detective fiction” (Kirkus Reviews). The agents of the FBI are fierce, brilliant, and brave—but nothing in their files can compare to the puzzling mysteries that have been tackled by Ellery Queen. He is a one-man crime-fighting force, whose areas of expertise range from murder and blackmail to rare books and buried treasure. At the headquarters of the Queen’s Bureau of Investigation, or QBI, there’s no crime that can’t be solved. Whether investigating a trio of widows, a bumbling Shakespearean actor, or a blackmailed Sicilian, Queen is quick to deploy his secret weapon in the fight against crime: his brain. Each of these eighteen stories is an elegant puzzle, crafted with all the wit that has made Queen the most famous detective of his age.

This is a critical history of spy fiction, film and television in the United States, with a particular focus on the American fictional spies that rivaled (and were often influenced by) Ian Fleming's James Bond. James Fenimore Cooper's Harvey Birch, based on a real-life counterpart, appeared in his novel The Spy in 1821. While Harvey Birch's British rivals dominated spy fiction from the late 1800s until the mid-1930s, American spy fiction came of age shortly thereafter. The spy boom in novels and films during the 1960s, spearheaded by Bond, heavily influenced the espionage genre in the United States for years to come, including series like The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and Matt Helm. The author demonstrates that, while American authors currently dominate the international spy fiction market, James Bond has cast a very long shadow, for a very long time.

The legendary detective investigates the death of a chrysanthemum king, as well as fourteen other mysteries in this short story collection. When Godfrey Mumford retired to focus on his chrysanthemums, he was worth a little over $5 million. A decade later, his family gathered for his birthday, he delivers shocking news: Thanks to poor investments on behalf of his financial manager, every penny is gone. The house is mortgaged, the stocks are sold—the only valuable item remaining is a priceless chrysanthemum pendant that once belonged to the emperor of Japan. It is Mumford’s prized possession, and it will be his doom. Soon after Mumford is paralyzed by a stroke, he is found murdered. The bizarre death catches the eye of world-famous detective Ellery Queen, who will unravel the mystery of this novella, Mum’s the Word, with the same elegance that he brings to each of the stories in this marvelous collection.
