Fiction. Mystery. HTML:The "intensely logical" master sleuth discovers a crowded coffin in one of his earliest and most puzzling cases (The New York Times).

The scion of a famous New York art-dealing family, Georg Khalkis spent his final years housebound with blindness until he died of a heart attack. After his funeral, his will mysteriously vanishes. Following a thorough search, Inspector Richard Queen's son, Ellery, suggests checking the coffin, where they discover not one, but two corpses.

When the second body is identified as an ex-convict, it becomes clear they have a murder case on their hands with links to the art world and a da Vinci forgery. It's up to young Ellery Queen to solve the case in "a lively and well-constructed yarn containing unusual setting, ingenuity of plot, a surprise solution and legitimate use of the analytico-deductive method" (New York Herald Tribune Book Review).

I enjoyed it. But I'm not rushing out to tell everyone about it. Apparently this author/character was really famous for the first part of the Twentieth century. .. This was the first time I'd heard of him. Typical crime mystery, really.
Thanks to the editors of the drop caps series for introducing me to him, though! ( )

Georg Khalkis, propietario de unas importantes Galerías de Arte, en la Cuarta Avenida de Nueva York, muere víctima de un ataque cardiaco, a los setenta y siete años. A raíz de la muerte del anciano se producen otras muertes, motivadas por su testamento. Ellery Queen va siguiendo el hilo del desconcertante caso, en el que los difuntos parecen autores de posteriores asesinatos. El culpable va dejando ingeniosas pistas falsas para desviar de sí las sospechas. Asimismo, el asunto se complica con el robo de unas pinturas, en especial, un Leonardo. El desenlace de la trama tiene un carácter sorprendente

I won't even try to sum up the plot because there are so many elements and twists that it's bananas. But bananas in a really good way. I loved how complex the mystery was, the large cast of characters, and I thought I knew the solution just as many ties as the detectives did. Plus, Ellery Queen is an absolute hoot. He's like Sherlock Holmes' bratty-but-charming kid brother. This was my first of his mysteries but it won't be my last. ( )

Pero juzgo cruel amargarte el placer, sibarítico lector. Acepta, eso sí, mi palabra -la palabra de alguien que conocer cada detalle de todos los asuntos en que Ellery aplicó la vibrante agudeza de su cerebro- de que el caso intitulado El misterio del ataúd griego es la más admirable aventura de Ellery Queen... ¡Buena caza, lector!

My particular copy of this book had a few editorial comments by the previous owner, which I actually found germane. He (the previous owner) wasn't fond of Ellery Queen (the character), finding him annoying. Which is true; here he can be annoying as Philo Vance, and that's saying something. The mystery itself is one of those puzzle-mysteries with a whole mess of contrived clues that don't really jibe with reality, though it's not meant to. From an entertainment level, it's pretty good. Can't say I found the solution to be to my taste, though once elucidated, I did see the chain.

For others, however, the week had been full to the brim. Sloane's suicide and funeral had undammed a flood. The newspapers wallowed in copious details. They splashed about in the backwaters of Gilbert Sloane's personal history. They sluiced the dead man with streams of subtle vituperation, managed without singular effort to soak and soften the outer shell of his life, so that it warped and split and curled off, a spoiled and loggy reputation. Those who survived him were caught up in the backwash, and of these Delphina Sloane became of necessity the most prominent. Waves of words lapped at the shores of her grief. The Khalkis house had been converted into an impregnable lighthouse toward whose beacon the not-to-be-daunted representatives of the Press directed their barques.
