Overview

Death Times Three (Nero Wolfe Series) by Rex Stout

Murder strikes thrice in these three baffling mysteries of crime and detection. First the great detective develops an appetite for the sweet taste of revenge when someone slips something most foul into his lunch—in a case motivated by the most "alimentary" of passions. Then a couturier's beautiful sister uses Archie as her ready-made alibi—and maybe fall guy—unless Wolfe can spot the loose ends in a nearly seamless crime. Finally Wolfe has a run-in with the law after a mysterious old woman leaves a package at the detective's West Thirty-Fifth Street brownstone that pits him against a cunning criminal—and the U.S. federal government!

Death times Three introduces a brand new Nero Wolfe novelet by Rex Stout. It could be plucked from today's headlines. The other two are original also, bringing a new demension to the canon. A great read, and a great book.

Handwritten copies of the 3 short-stories in this book were found in Stout's papers after his death. They were all written in the 1940's and 1950's. The 2nd and 3rd stories are reworked copies of 2 stories previously published in 2 different books. They each used the same storyline with the same characters. The 2nd story is exactly the same except for some physical changes to one of the characters, and, subsequently, some minor changes in dialogue and action. The 3rd story has a complete change of victim, but is, essentially the same. Why Stout wrote the variations is explained in the lengthy introduction. As to which versions are better, that is a matter of personal taste. The 1st story in this book is a new Wolfe/Goodwin story; in that, this is the first time it's in a book. The story is a reworked "Tecumseh Fox" story. A member of Stout's publishing company once asked Stout to create another series of stories sans Wolfe and company. He did: T. Fox. Stout, and the public, never really took to him, so his stories are few. As a Wolfe/Goodwin tale, the 1st story works well. It has shades of other W/G tales running through it, but it is still enjoyable. Overall, it's a good book.
