Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Nero Wolfe towers over his rivals...he is an exceptional character creation.” —New Yorker

A grand master of the form, Rex Stout is one of Americas greatest mystery writers, and his literary creation Nero Wolfe is one of fictions greatest detectives. Here, in this special double edition, the arrogant, gourmandizing, sedentary sleuth and his trusty man-about-town, Archie Goodwin, solve two of their most bizarre cases.

Some Buried Caesar

A prize bull destined for the barbecue is found pawing the corpse of a late restaurateur. Wolfe is certain that Hickory Caesar Grindon, the soon-to-be-beefsteak bull, isnt the murderer. But who among a veritable stampede of suspects—including a young woman whos caught Archies eye—turned the tables on Hickorys would-be butcher? Its a crime that wins a blue ribbon for sheer audacity—and Nero Wolfe is the one detective audacious enough to solve it.

The Golden Spiders

A twelve-year-old boy shows up at Wolfes brownstone with an incredible story. Soon the great detective finds himself hired for the grand sum of $4.30 and faced with the question of why the last two people to hire him were murdered. To keep it from becoming three, Wolfe must discover the unlikely connection between a gray Cadillac, a mysterious woman, and a pair of earrings shaped like spiders dipped in gold.

Synopsis:

Two classic Nero Wolfe novels are available in one all-new paperback edition.608 pp.
