A murder in a crowded Broadway theater presents a full house of suspects--the first in this classic mystery series starring Ellery Queen!   Despite the dismal Broadway season, Gunplay continues to draw crowds. A gangland spectacle, it's packed to the gills with action, explosions, and gunfire. In fact, Gunplay is so loud that no one notices the killing of Monte Field. In a sold-out theater, Field is found dead partway through the second act, surrounded by empty seats. The police hold the crowd and call for the one man who can untangle this daring murder: Inspector Richard Queen.   With the help of his son Ellery, a bibliophile and novelist whose imagination can solve any crime, the Inspector attacks this seemingly impenetrable mystery. Anyone in the theater could have killed the unscrupulous lawyer, and several had the motive. Only Ellery Queen, in his debut novel, can decipher the clue of the dead man's missing top hat.… (més)

Listened on Hoopla.

Top hats, so many top hats.

This mystery was fine, and I guessed where it was going based on a line of inquiry that was not mentioned in the investigation. Then, at the end, it was pulled out of a hat (ba-dum-tssss) as a key point.

Not gory or violent, but very very 1929. Especially the motive. ( )

I liked the book until I got to the end. I realize the book was written in 1929, but I was still disappointed. The murdered man was a blackmailer and he was blackmailing someone who was passing for white. There was a reference to "tainted blood".

I read this book in annotated form as included in Classic American Crime Fiction of the 1920s
edited by Leslie S. Klinger.

Thus far in this collection, I've read the first books about Charlie Chan and Philo Vance. Both had issues, from my modern perspective--a painfully slow start and barely any Charlie Chan in the first, and the rambling, annoying presence of Philo Vance in the second. But in this, the first Ellery Queen novel, I finally encountered a 1920s mystery I absolutely loved. The writing is fantastic from page one, the mystery utterly intriguing, and the cast of characters diverse and amusing. I could see myself reading and enjoying more Ellery Queen novels. ( )

#1 Ellery Queen - how exciting to find these vintage mysteries on Scribd. It's brilliant, of course, but Ellery's character is just developing. ( )

OK, but hasn't aged well. I had no idea this series started in 1929. ( )
