About this product
- DescriptionA grand master of the form, Rex Stout is one of America s greatest mystery writers, and his literary creation Nero Wolfe is one of fiction s greatest detectives. Here, in Stout s third and fourth complete Wolfe mysteries, the arrogant, gourmandizing, sedentary sleuth and his trusty man-about-town, Archie Goodwin, solve two of their most baffling cases. The Rubber Band What do a Wild West lynching and a respected English bleman have in common? On the surface, absolutely thing. But when a young woman hires his services, it becomes Nero Wolfe s job to look deeper and find the connection. A forty-year-old pact, a five-thousand-mile search, and a million-dollar murder are all linked to an international scandal that could rebound on the great detective and his partner, Archie, with fatal abruptness. The Red Box Murder by chocolate? That s the premise Nero Wolfe must operate from when a beautiful woman is poisoned after indulging in a box of candy. It s a case that the great detective stranger himself to overindulgence is loath to take for a variety of reasons, including that it may require that he leave his comfortable brownstone. But he and Archie are compelled by a mystery that mixes high fashion and low motives and a killer who may have made the deadliest mistake.
