Iirc, these are all from the series of paperback tough-guy mysteries
published under Queen's name, but without Ellery as the detective.

http://www.hycyber.com/MYST/queen_ellery.html lists FACE TO FACE, which iirc
is a "regular" Ellery Queen novel, as "ghostwritten by Jack Vance?", though
if you follow the link to "Novels Ghostwritten by Others," the attribution
is repeated without the question mark.

In any case, mantis, which of your evaluations correspond to which books?
