REX STOUT goes into Nero Wolfe's long buried and jealously guarded past for some of the complications and motives that make Over My Dead Body a brilliant anu exciting successor to Some Buried Caesar and Too Many Cooks. It ail began one day when two Montenegrin "females," as Archie called them, arrived in Wolfe's office with a problem Wolfe didn't want to touch. He did touch it though, when there was a murder in the fencing academy in which the girls worked as i nstructresses, and when the affair began to take on international complications. Over My Dead Body is another example of Mr. Stout's skill, thoroughness and accuracy in giving unusual settings to his stories. Fencing is more than a backdrop ; it is a fascinating part of this book
