19 short stories and 1 novella. I hadn't actually read Ellery Queen before, though I have a dim recollection of watching the TV program. These stories are pretty good, though sometimes it gets tedious to read so many short stories together (my problem, not the book's).

I had not read Ellery for some time. The reader is treated fairly, as all the clues to solve the mystery are provided. Not like some mystery writers that have details missing or vague. Fun to read and an unexpected insight into how much society has changed over the years. This book is great for a short read when time is limited, as each story can be read in a short time. Pay attention and the clues are there.
