THE FIRST of these three new detective short stories exercises Nero Wolfe's ingenuity to the full. In the next two he finds his patience sorely tried, and his body exercised too, for Wolfe, who has been called " one-seventh of a ton of orchid-loving, beer-drinking genius," does not c'are to move out of his own comfortable house; not even to cook trout for a visiting foreign ambassador at a fishing lodge in the Adirondacks; not even to attend an enquiry among private detectives in connection with a 'wire-tapping' investigation. Wolfe and Archie find murder on the bant of the beautiful trout stream—murder that has its motives in the great world of high finance and international politics. And in Too Many Detectives murder is done right under the noses of a gathering of private detectives. Wolfe is as resourceful and domineering as ever and Archie is his usual lively self in these three new, exciting and ingenious detective stories.
