A dead spy sucks Tim Corrigan into a deadly international conspiracy

Walter Ingram has an English name, but a German accent. He passes through the lobby of his New York hotel with ramrod-straight posture, bypassing the bar and going directly to his room. There, he’s greeted with a pistol to the skull. The 1st blow dazes him; the 2nd knocks him out. As he dies, Ingram murmurs, “Nein . . . Nein.” Seconds later, a cabbie fighting his way through New York traffic hears a sickening thud as the mangled remains of Ingram’s body crash into the hood of his car. On the streets of Manhattan, it’s raining spies.
 
The case lands in the lap of Tim Corrigan, the 1-eyed cop who strikes fear into criminals across New York City. Before he can catch the killer, he must find out who Ingram really was. The dead man had countless names, passports, and powerful friends. But nothing can stop Corrigan from finding the truth.

About the author

Ellery Queen was a pen name created and shared by two cousins, Frederic Dannay (1905–1982) and Manfred B. Lee (1905–1971), as well as the name of their most famous detective. Born in Brooklyn, they spent forty-two years writing, editing, and anthologizing under the name, gaining a reputation as the foremost American authors of the Golden Age “fair play” mystery.
 
Although eventually famous on television and radio, Queen’s first appearance came in 1928, when the cousins won a mystery-writing contest with the book that was later published as The Roman Hat Mystery. Their character was an amateur detective who uses his spare time to assist his police inspector uncle in solving baffling crimes. Besides writing the Queen novels, Dannay and Lee cofounded Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine, one of the most influential crime publications of all time. Although Dannay outlived his cousin by nine years, he retired Queen upon Lee’s death.
