    Misleading description

    Long-time readers know that Stout wrote short mysteries that would be gathered into one book. This is no execption. The first story has Archie and Wolfe at odds during Christmas, and Archie leaves Wolfe in the lurch to attend a party...where one of the guests is murdered. Wolfe has his own reasons for investigating the crime, however. The second story shows Wolfe with a problem. Jealous at the discovery of a rare orchid in the possesion of a wealthy philanthropist, he sends Archie to the Easter Parade, to get photos of the orchid. The philanthropist's beautiful young wife is murdered while wearing the orchid corsage, and Wolfe finds himself under suspicion... The third story has Wolfe at a Fourth of July picnic as a guest speaker for the Restaurant Union workers. When a fellow speaker is murdered, Wolfe needs to clear himself and Archie of suspicion. The last story is not holiday related, but worthy of note. Rex Stout would occasionally rewrite stories, keeping the same plot, but changing the characters. In this story, the sister of a couterier plots to have Wolfe and Archie force a designing woman out of the company...and her brother's life. The two men, however, find themselves having to solve her murder instead. I remember the first story from a collection of Christmas stories of writers like Ellery Queen, and that was my first introduction to Rex Stout. :-)
