Audio Partners deserves high praise for pulling together its catalog of semi-forgotten gems from the Golden Age of detective fiction. Among these is Blain Fairman's reading of Queen's 1939 novel about the young detective's search for true and worthy heirs to the fortune of a missing tycoon. The story is a light and amusing piece of pre-War frivolity, with Mr. Queen and his new partner, Beau Rummell, chasing clues, uncovering deceptions, and falling under the spell of gorgeous dames. Fairman matches the novel's peppery banter with his own and amusingly dandy, almost effete, style. S.E.S. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 01]
