  To my mind The American Gun Mystery is one of the weaker early Queen novels. The plot involves murder during a rodeo in a crow seat arena. Trying to plot a baffling mystery given such circumstances is a very ambitious task which Queen does not quite pull off/5(6).   The American Gun Mystery had everything going for it to become the standout title of the international series, but the solution to the vanishing gun is the reason why the book is never mentioned in the same breath as The Greek Coffin Mystery or The Siamese Twin Mystery. One of the clearest examples of a fatal flaw in the plot of an otherwise.

About the Author-. Ellery Queen is a pseudonym used by two American cousins from Brooklyn—Daniel Nathan, alias Frederic Dannay (–), and Manford (Emanuel) Lepofsky, alias Manfred Bennington Lee (–)—to write detective fiction. In a successful series of novels that covered forty-two years, Ellery Queen served as both the authors' name and that of the detective-hero. Get this from a library! The American gun mystery. [Ellery Queen; Dan Butler] -- When a Western star is gunned down at a rodeo, Ellery Queen saddles up to solve the mystery. Buck Horne has roped thousands of cattle, slugged his way out of dozens of saloons, and shot plenty of men.
