Publisher Comments:

As any herpetologist will tell you, the fer-de-lance is among the most dreaded snakes known to man.  When someone makes a present of one to Nero Wolfe, Archie Goodwin knows he's getting dreadully close to solving the devilishly clever murders of an immigrant and a college president.  As for Wolfe, he's playing snake charmer in a case with more twists than an anaconda — whistling a seductive tune he hopes will catch a killer who's still got poison in his heart.

First, thank goodness Bantam Crime Line has begun reprinting the Nero Wolfe titles for a new generation. Fer-De-Lance is the first Nero Wolfe mystery that Rex Stout wrote and a good one it is. You don't have to worry about the order though because each story is a stand alone. Here we have murder,attempted murder, and a deadly snake. Start with this one and you will be hooked.
