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 don't see them listed here, but this is a short story collection containing the following: "Window for Death," "Immune to Murder," and "Too Many Detectives." I have the DVD collection (wonderful!), and a few paperbacks. I know that Rex Stout's Nero Wolfe books are always short on pages. So don't expect long novels here. But they are entertaining as always. Since I am a fan, I have the NookBook collection too. I love the setting of New York, with the always smooth yet somewhat sarcastic Archie Goodwin as Nero Wolfe's front man. The books tend to be a time capsule too, and I prefer the books written in the 40's. Good for a serious mystery fan. Try the "sample" first!

Once you start reading Nero Wolve mysteries, it can be tough to get enough. Fun, always intriguing, and keeps you thinking to the end, without much of the gore or thriller or emotion/fear that seems popular in more recently written mysteries.

Thoroughly enjoyable.

Rex Stout was a great story teller, writer. But one only reads Nero Wolfe to listen to Archie Goodwin. These three novellas are great examples of Rex Stout's ability to tell a story.
