You are invited to a murder.
That was how theinvitations should have read when aged millionaire Hendrik Brass sent out hismessages to six oddly assorted men and women who knew neither him nor each other.All arrived at the isolated Brass mansion, lured by the tantalizing promise offabulous wealth. But from the moment the shining brass doors of the grotesquelyconstructed house swung shut behind them, they began to realize they had beenenticed into playing parts in a monstrous joke-the joke of a twisted, brilliantmind ... a joke whose punch line was murder.
Ellery Queen's latest adventure is a satiricalmurder-comedy that combines hilarity with the deadly macabre and, of course,the full Queen-quota of fair-and-square deduction and endless surprise.
