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.

3 top-notch Wolfe/Goodwin short-stories. The 1st tale links the past with the present via murder. The 2nd tale has Wolfe and Archie on a mission for the US Government. The 3rd, and final, tale finds a flock of private eyes, including Wolfe and Archie, suspected of murder.

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.
