Ellery Queen
Ellery Queen is the collective pen name of the writing team consisting of cousins Frederic Dannay (Daniel Nathan) and Manfred Bennington Lee (Manford Lepofsky), who wrote detective fiction together. Most of their novels featured a fictional character also by the name of Ellery Queen. The character has been adapted to TV, film and radio. In addition to the Ellery Queen novels, the cousins also wrote a series featuring a Shakespearean actor named Drury Lane (writing as Barnaby Ross).

Ellery Queen debuted with the novel The Roman Hat Mystery, which was published in 1929. Their final novel was published in 1971, which was entitled A Fine and Private Place. Below is a list of Ellery Queen’s books in order of when they were first released:
