    Ellery Queen is a pseudonym created in by crime fiction writers Frederic Dannay and Manfred Bennington Lee and the name of their main fictional character, a mystery writer in New York City who helps his police inspector father solve baffling murders. Danny and Lee wrote most of the more than thirty novels and several short story collections in which Ellery Queen appeared as a character. In "Murder at the Mousetrap," the first Bunburry book, fudge-making and quaffing real ale in the local pub are matched by an undercurrent of passion, jealousy, hatred and murder - laced with a welcome dose of humour. Alfie McAlister has retreated from London to the peace and quiet of the country to recover from a personal tragedy.

      Disney will scrap the twin Siamese cat characters from its forthcoming remake of Lady and the Tramp, and has commissioned Janelle Monae .   In The Tragedy of X, a man is poisoned in the middle of a crowded New York streetcar, and not one of the dozens of witnesses can provide any useful evidence. The police are stumped until they receive a letter from Lane, claiming to have solved the crime by reading newspaper reports.3/5.

      J udged solely by their debut, Gish, there were few signs that the Smashing Pumpkins could have produced a work as disciplined and cohesive as their sophomore effort, Siamese Gish was grungy and rhythmic, with threads of artsy, Moody Blues-inspired psychedelia sewn throughout, it also contained its fair share of self-obsessed rock clichés, including screeching, 5/5. (The Tragedy of X also had a dying clue, but let’s just call that a Drury Lane mystery) The thing is, though, that the dying clues in Siamese Twin Mystery are left, seemingly, by everyone but the victim.
