Excellent work by Stout, but somewhat marred by this eBook edition seemingly NOT being of the printing shown on the B&N sales page, and having repeated scanning errors -- missing punctuation at the end of half the sentences, for example, and a handful of spots where the scanning software obviously misread two letters on the printed page as one other letter. I had hoped for a clean digital version of the 1997 printing; generally I expect a higher standard of quality from Random House. Was this a rush job? Working around the mystery of the missing periods, we have three rolicking stories of cases during 1960 to 1962 when our heroes are much more personally involved than Mr. Wolfe would like. Gallantry abounds, fees ... not so much. Not as much fun as _Prisoners Base_ or _Death of a Doxy_, but still a pleasant visit with the classic detective duo.

Love Nero Wolfe and was delighted to see more entries in the series. Robert Goldsborough has done an excellent job capturing Rex Stout's voice. What fun to see Archie meet Nero! Highly recommended.

Very enjoyable. I prefer the longer one-story novels, but like all Nero Wolfe stories, this was a fun read. Rex Stout's writing is so clean and well-constructed.

For a Rex Stout fan this 3 story book was a real treat. The stories were as good as any Nero Wolfe mystery,, and the dialogue was better the usual. Short stories also have one advantage,,, they are easy to fininsh in one setting.

The series of Nero Wolfe mysteries contains many books with a trio of stories. I think this is one of the best.
