The army wants Nero Wolfe urgently, but he refuses their clarion call to duty. It takes Archie Goodwin to titillate Wolfe's taste for crime with two malevolent morsels: a corpse that refuses to rest in peace and a sinister "accident" involving national security. It's up to the Grandiose Master himself, Nero Wolfe, to set the traps to catch a pair of wily killers--as Archie lays the bait on the wrong side of the law. Introduction by John Lutz "It is always a treat to read a Nero Wolfe mystery. The man has entered our folklore."-- The New York Times Book Review A grand master of the form, Rex Stout is one of America's greatest mystery writers, and his literary creation Nero Wolfe is one of the greatest fictional detectives of all time. Together, Stout and Wolfe have entertained--and puzzled--millions of mystery fans around the world. Now, with his perambulatory man-about-town, Archie Goodwin, the arrogant, gourmandizing, sedentary sleuth is back in the original seventy-three cases of crime and detection written by the inimitable master himself, Rex Stout.
