Synopsis

Inside a run-down shack on the banks of the Delaware River married Philadelphia door-to-door salesman Joe Wilson lies dying in a cheap blood-spattered suit stabbed through the heart by an assailant he describes with his last breath as a mysterious veiled woman. So begins master detective Ellery Queen's strangest case ever. For Joe Wilson is not one man but two each married secretly to a different wife and in his other life as New York millionaire Joseph Kent Gimball he has just changed the beneficiary of a million-dollar life insurance policy. With painstaking brilliance Ellery Queen sifts through a plethora of clues to solve the riddle of the Halfway House murder beginning with the most important question of all: Whom did the murderer think she was killing impoverished Wilson or millionaire Gimball? And why?
