About the Author

Rex Stout, born 1886 in Indiana/USA, worked at thirty different professions until he earned enough money to travel. In 1932, he began to write thrillers focusing on the famous detective Nero Wolfe. Nero is a gourmet weighing more than a hundred kilos, and moving as little as possible. Rex Stout finished more than fifty novels and received the "Grand Masters Award". He died 1975.

Rex Stout,1886 in Indiana/USA geboren, soll ca. dreißig Berufe ausgeübt haben, bevor er mit einem von ihm selbst konzipierten Sparkassensystem so viel Geld verdiente, daß er ausgedehnte Reisen unternehmen konnte. 1932 begann er, Kriminalromane zu schreiben in deren Mittelpunkt fast immer der berühmte Privatdetektiv Nero Wolfe steht. Dieser ist eine über hundert Kilo "schwergewichtiger" Gourmet, der sich so wenig wie möglich bewegt und leidenschaftlicher Orchideenzüchter ist. Rex Stout wurde für seine über fünfzig Romane mit dem "Grand Masters Award" ausgezeichnet. Er starb 1975.

Splendidly informative introductions by two top crime writers make this double edition of two of Stout's best Nero Wolfe novels a treat and a bargain. Loren D. Estleman does the honors for FER-DE-LANCE, while Robert Goldsborough holds up the side for THE LEAGUE OF FRIGHTENED MEN.
