"It is always a treat to [hear] a Nero Wolfe mystery. The man has entered our folklore." -- The New York Times Book Review
"Nero Wolfe, the fat detective of Rex Stout's novels, towers over his rivals...he is an exceptional character creation." -- The New Yorker
"Rex Stout, through the voice of Archie telling us about his world (a full third of which was occupied by Nero Wolfe), raised detective fiction to the level of art with these books. He gave us genius of at least two kinds, and a strong realist voice that was shot through with hope." -- Walter Mosley --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
About the Author
Rex Stout, born 1886 in Indiana/USA, worked at thirty different professions until he earned enough money to travel. In 1932, he began to write thrillers focusing on the famous detective Nero Wolfe. Nero is a gourmet weighing more than a hundred kilos, and moving as little as possible. Rex Stout finished more than fifty novels and received the "Grand Masters Award." He died 1975.
Rex Stout,1886 in Indiana/USA geboren, soll ca. dreiig Berufe ausgeubt haben, bevor er mit einem von ihm selbst konzipierten Sparkassensystem so viel Geld verdiente, da er ausgedehnte Reisen unternehmen konnte. 1932 begann er, Kriminalromane zu schreiben in deren Mittelpunkt fast immer der beruhmte Privatdetektiv Nero Wolfe steht. Dieser ist eine uber hundert Kilo "schwergewichtiger" Gourmet, der sich so wenig wie moglich bewegt und leidenschaftlicher Orchideenzuchter ist. Rex Stout wurde fur seine uber funfzig Romane mit dem "Grand Masters Award" ausgezeichnet. Er starb 1975. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

This is somewhat of an "inside baseball" of Wolfe -- lots of characters, constant action. Not a long book, but alot of content.
Wolfe leaves his home, which is always an interesting twist, given how much he hates it.
Wold almost gets arrested and taken to Police HQ. He dictates a letter before he is to be taken, and staves it off. The letter is vintage Rex Stout.
