Overview

A spine-tingling NERO WOLFE murder-mystery. It all began when Nero Wolfe was blackmailed into taking the case of a rather stunning blonde who was accused of stealing. Suddenly there was a corpse! And to further complicate matters ... another corpse! Then Nero Wolfe started weaving his fine web. When he had completed it, he was stunned to find himself enmeshed in it! For big spiders were weaving, too! Powerful, international spiders that had everything to lose if Nero Wolfe should win--and who were determined that he should become their fly! But Nero Wolfe again managed to sort out all the queer characters in this intriguing case and put the finger on the killer; but for a while it seemed he would never make it! Mix diamonds and murder ... spice it with an attractive blonde and a sinuous brunette ... put in a weird fencing academy to bake ... and it comes out as international skullduggery with deadly icing! When Nero Wolfe was forced to bite into this concoction, he not only suffered acute private eye indigestion--he was catapulted into the strangest and most dangerous assignment of his colorful career!

What People are Saying About This

Walter Mosley
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....He gave us genius...and a strong realist voice that was shot through with hope.

Meet the Author

Widely regarded as one of America’s greatest mystery writers, Rex Stout (1886-1975) was the creator of the obese, orchid-loving, agoraphobic, egotistical, and brilliant detective, Nero Wolfe, and his wise-cracking sidekick, Archie Goodwin. The duo was featured in 33 novels and 39 novellas between 1934 and 1975, including books such as The Three Witnesses, The Doorbell Rang, and Over My Dead Body.

I read Nero Wolf mysteries when I was a youth in the lATE 30'S AND 40'S enjoyed them then and in rereading them today enjpy them just as I did then, the stories written in the 50's and 60's continue the same pace as the first stories and are just as enjopyable, B7N need to stock more in their stores.

Arrogant, lazy, rude...the great Nero Wolfe has been referred to as all of these,but will a kinder side be revealed when a Balkan bombshell enters his office seeking a defense in the matter of some missing diamonds? Maybe, when the woman in question claims to be his daughter.And when a client in her fencing school is stabbed through the heart Wolfe, Archie and co. are thrust into a mystery of international concern that pushes the envelope of suspense. Over My Dead Body...a real treat especially with a look into the youth of the great detective when (at a much lighter weight)he made his presence known in Montenegro. No one compares with the mastery of Rex Stout.
