The perfect introduction to crime fiction’s greatest armchair detective: three mysteries featuring Nero Wolfe and his nemesis, gangland kingpin Arnold Zeck . . .AND BE A VILLAINTHE SECOND CONFESSIONIN THE BEST FAMILIES A guest on a radio talk show drops dead on-air after drinking a glass of a sponsor’s beverage. A business mogul suspects his daughter’s lawyer boyfriend of engaging in highly un-American activities. An aging millionairess feels threatened by her young playboy husband’s newfound wealth. Nero Wolfe agrees to take each of these cases from the comfort of his townhouse on West 35th Street—and each time, the trail leads to Arnold Zeck, a criminal mastermind willing to defend his syndicate by any means necessary. With Wolfe’s indefatigable man-about-town, Archie Goodwin, doing the legwork, their battle of wits will have fatal consequences. Featuring a new introduction by the head of Rex Stout’s literary society (“The Wolfe Pack”) and a letter from Stout’s daughter, this ebook bundle is the thrilling legacy of a grand master of the mystery novel. “It’s always a treat to read a Nero Wolfe mystery. The man has entered our folklore.”—The New York Times Book Review
Rex Stout (1886–1975) wrote dozens of short stories, novellas, and full-length mystery novels, most featuring his two indelible characters, the peerless detective Nero Wolfe and his handy sidekick, Archie Goodwin.
