So starts grasp detective Ellery Queen's strangest case ever. For Joe Wilson isn't one guy, yet , each one married secretly to another spouse - and in his different existence, as big apple millionaire Joseph Kent Gimball, he has simply replaced the beneficiary of a million-dollar existence insurance coverage.
With painstaking brilliance Ellery Queen sifts via a plethora of clues to resolve the riddle of the midway condo homicide, starting with an important query of all: Whom did the assassin imagine she was once killing, impoverished Wilson or millionaire Gimball? And why?
