Rex Stout – Death Times Three


Murder strikes thrice in these three baffling mysteries of crime and detection. First, Stout’s great detective, Nero Wolfe, develops an appetite for the sweet taste of revenge when someone slips something most foul into his lunch. Then a couturier’s beautiful sister uses Archie Goodwin, Wolfe’s man about town, as her ready-made alibi (and maybe fall guy), unless Wolfe can spot the loose ends in a nearly seamless crime. Finally, Wolfe has a run-in with the law after a mysterious old woman leaves a package at the detective’s West 35th Street brownstone that pits him against a cunning criminal and the U.S. government.

Two of these tales are rewrites of stories I had already read in other collections. I especially think the last story suffers for the removal of Miss Hattie, the most fun one-off character in the entire series.
