"Blood Relations: The Selected Letters of Ellery Queen, 1947-1950" reveals the private lives and working habits of Frederic Dannay and Manfred B. Lee, the men who created EQ. Their collaboration was notoriously stormy, their personal lives blighted with illness, but their contribution to the mystery world and American culture is incontestable. Culled from Frederic Dannay's personal papers, "Blood Relations" offers a fascinating look at the artistic and psychological workings of two men who created together what neither could create alone.
