His attention once directed at it, it ceased to be an eye and became-obviously-a knothole. Aye, tear her tattered ensign down- That’s enough of that nonsense! he said firmly, sitting up. movement sent the worn clean quilt sliding to the floor-a journey of no great distance, he learned immediately, since he had been sleeping on sheepskins spread over a tick stuffed with hay and corn shucks. The smell of all three was plain. He was not in some primitive motor court after all. And with that, he remembered.

Amazing. Far better than science fiction. Sociology of religion or anthropology as fiction. It is difficult to categorize.

Ellery certainly has some unique adventures.

It was an interesting story. My one of the better Queen novels. I the characters are a little odd and the story seems about out of focus, but it was fun.

I was blown away by this when I first read it, mainly because it was so far outside of the traditional Queen book that it really caught my attention. One reviewer states that it fits more with Cadfael and that comparison does hold.

There is a murder, of course, and the ensuing tale is fast. Maybe too fast, too quick. But the story is wonderfully written and captivating. As the outsider descends into the secluded conclave, the story weaves well among the then-modern world and those who have hidden themselves away. The stranger works through their primitive sense of justice and the story ends perfectly.

However, there is a catch--a very big one. This gets three stars for its too-brief storyline and for another, glaring "problem."

Too bad this isn't really "Ellery Queen" (Dannay and Lee) writing this. (Crime Fiction, 1749-1980: A Comprehensive Bibliography by Allen J. Hubin, Garland, 1984). Nope, it was ghost-written by Avram Davidson. You see, a few EQ stories were not written by these men but ghost-written by others. For shame, for shame!)

First, I have a HarperCollins copy of this book in softcover, published in 1994, 5" x 8", 157 pages. The work was originally published in 1964.

While the saga is slated as a "mystery," and murder does in fact ensue, this story just doesn't fall into the arena of Christie, Rinehart, or even previous Ellery Queen. It's more like a "Cadfael" entry.

A contemporary guy is transported back in time (spiritually speaking) when he gets stranded, and drawn into, an isolated religious community in the American southwest. These folks have existed for generations, virtually unknown to the outside world, only sending out one or two members for necessary supplies once in a great while to a small general store which is located in the desert boondocks. Think "The Village," The Village (Widescreen Vista Series).

Our protagonist interacts with these people and finds himself in the position of "investigator," when a murder occurs amongst the flock. Why does he feel compelled to solve the mystery? Because these pious folks have their own VERY unusual justice system, (which is also a bit rusty from lack of use), and the wrong guy might just be getting tagged for this one.

Folks, this is a very compelling tale, albeit an all-too-short one. In any case, it's a page-turner. Highly recommended.
