The Chinese Orange Mystery by Ellery Queen

The Chinese Orange Mystery by Ellery Queen

An unknown dead man is found in the office of a prosperous publisher. His clothes are on backward, and all of the furniture in the room has been reversed. Ellery Queen continues to uncover “backward” clues–leading him to the identity of this puzzling victim.

8th in the Ellery Queen series. Adapted as the 1936 film The Mandarin Mystery. A classic example of the “locked room mystery,” in which a seemingly impossible crime is committed and the reader is encouraged to solve the crime before the solution is revealed within the story.
