[to his father] "You know I'm supposed to be home finishing a book. You know I [have] a deadline
to meet, but you drag me up here and you dangle all this catnip in front of me."

"Now, why didn't I think of this before? Probably because it's so simple."

Novels  by  Barnaby Ross
The cousins wrote four novels using the pseudonym 'Barnaby Ross' about Drury Lane, a Shakespearean actor in
New York City who had retired from the stage due to deafness and was consulted as an amateur detective. The four
novels also featured Inspector Thumm (at first a policeman, later a private investigator) and his crime-solving
daughter Patience. The books were later reprinted with Ellery Queen as author.
