Overview

Rex Stout's Nero Wolfe -- A grand master of the form, Rex Stout is one of America's greatest mystery writers, and his literary creation Nero Wolfe is one of the greatest fictional detectives of all time. Together, Stout and Wolfe have entertained -- and puzzled -- millions of mystery fans around the world. Now, with his perambulatory man-about-town, Archie Goodwin, the arrogant, gourmandizing, sedentary sleuth is back in the original seventy-three cases of crime and detection written by the inimitable master himself, Rex Stout.

Not Quite Dead Enough -- The army wants Nero Wolfe urgently, but he refuses their clarion call to duty. It takes Archie Goodwin to titillate Wolfe's taste for crime with two malevolent morsels: a corpse that refuses to rest in peace and a sinister "accident" involving national security. It's up to the Grandiose Master himself, Nero Wolfe, to set the traps to catch a pair of wily killers -- as Archie lays the bait on the wrong side of the law.

The Rex Stout Library -- An ongoing program dedicated to making available the complete set of Nero Wolfe mysteries, these special collector's editions will feature new introductions by today's best writers and never-before-published memorabilia from the life of Rex Stout.

    WELCOME TO THE MYSTERY WORLD OF ARCHIE GOODWIN AND NERO WOLFE

    Rex Stout's mystery novels are based on the world of New York circa 1940's and 1950's. Like the world created by Arthur Canon Doyle for Sherlock Holmes, Stout creates a world for Archie Goodwin and Nero Wolfe that form the basis for each mystery novel. The world is interesting and charming. Unlike Agatha Christie's novels, I've never been able to "chose the villain." Unlike Agatha Christie's novels, Stout gives you all the facts up front. Plots take interesting turns and twists. Archie Goodwin's wit will keep you laughing, but you can't help admiring both characters. The women who deserve it are always treated like ladies. Though there is murder, there is no "gore." Archie must fall in love at least once in every novel, but none of the ladies are ever able to capture him. Archie is incredibly clever and always charming.

    Stout's novels are a great vacation escape. I am attempting to collect them all. I recommend them to everyone.

    I love the Nero Wolf series.

    The prose and attitudes may be very dated-they were written a long time ago-but the characters are clear, consistant and engaging. The dialogue may also be a little clipped, but it reflects another place and era. And with the Nook features you can really expand your vocabulary with this series.
