There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Rex Stout is an incredible author. All his stories are told by Nero Wolf's assistant Archie Goodwin. They are murder mysteries but violence is usually not described.

Each story book is set in the time the book was written so it is fun to read about New York anywhere from the 30's through the late 50's. Each story has a familiar theme but characters are charming and Stout writes so engagingly the reader is immersed in the story. It is a must to read the whole series as they also build on each other and references are made to previous events and in some cases future events that pop up in other books.

So much fun to read!

It's a bit arrogant, to give this less than five stars, since it's Stout who is always re-readable. But then again I think that only the last story, "Too Many Detectives, is Stout at his best, not that the others are chopped liver. At this point, I've read them so many times, I know whodunnit and why, so the joys of reading come from other sources -- character, humor, and the nuanced relationship between Nero Wolfe and his sardonic legman, Archie Goodwin.

Again, I continue to re-read these stories, so I've definitely gotten my value-for-use. If there were more Wolfes, I'd buy them. Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase. I just finished this book, but could have recommended it before opening it.

As a long-time reader of Stout, I can tell you that his plotting is impeccable, his denouements unfailingly surprising and his command of the language masterful. The first story, "A Window for Death," has long been one of my favorites, featuring as it does Stout's usual suspects--class, money and sexual tension--in the story of a black sheep returning to the fold and mysteriously dying.

The other two tales are tasty, too; in "Immune to Death," Stout's lazy and unwilling detective, Nero Wolfe, gets involved in an international fight over oil rights, and in "Too Many Detectives," he is caught in an investigation regarding illegal wire tapping. I will read a Stout--any Stout, even the occasional romance novel--again and again, whenever I get my hands on one, and I always pass them around to anyone who loves a mystery.

They're fast, hilarious, arrogant, profoundly unrealistic and fun, with the air of an old comic thriller movie, like Hitchcock's "The Lady Vanishes" or one starring Edna Mae Oliver. Don't be put off by the undercurrent of misogyny, I'm a flaming, old-school feminist and if I can laugh at such sheer ridiculousness, so can you. To all Wolf fans.

I thought I had read and reread all of Mr. Stouts works, many times.

Archie adds humor, Nero does the brain work Another great set of novellas by Rex Stout.

All three mysteries were a great deal of fun and, as usual, the interplay between Archie and Wolfe was the highlight. Truly one of the great series in mystery fiction. Easy to read and the reader doesn't need a program to keep track of the characters. This is typical Rex Stout Nero Wolfe. I read it the first time more than fifteen years ago. This was my fourth time reading it. It was just as enjoyable as it was the first time.

Arrow claims to have made an agreement with Bert that grants control of the mining business and any assets derived from it to either partner if the other dies, causing the family to suspect him. Altercations between Anne and Paul, and between Paul and Arrow, only cloud the matter further. He focuses on the hot-water bags that had been placed in Bert's bed to keep him warm; Paul claims that they were empty when he found the body, but Anne insists that he told Louise he had emptied them himself.

The incident is similar to the death of the Fyfes' father 20 years earlier, due to pneumonia worsened by a bedroom window left open during a blizzard. Bert was tried on a murder charge and acquitted, leading to his long estrangement from the family. Archie investigates the idea that Bert may have been poisoned or given an overdose, but Buhl states that the morphine was not tampered with and Anne says that she followed his instructions exactly.

Three for the Chair

Wolfe brings Saul Panzer in to help and takes interest in the matter of some ice cream that Paul had bought for a Sunday party at the family home in Mount Kisco. He had put it in the refrigerator at Bert's apartment on the night of his death, but no one can remember seeing it since then. Archie fails to learn its whereabouts, but Wolfe surprises him by asking him to bring Buhl, Arrow, the Tuttles, and the Fyfes to the office. Wolfe informs the group that he has decided to notify the police about Bert's death and explains his theory of the crime.

Product details

The ice cream Paul bought had been packed in dry ice to keep it cold; the murderer emptied the hot-water bags and placed the dry ice on top of them to lower Bert's body temperature to dangerous levels without causing frostbite burns or leaving any traces once it evaporated. Wolfe has learned that Tuttle provided an alibi for Bert during the murder trial, and that Bert had returned to New York to check into it.

He had visited the landlady from whom he and Tuttle had rented rooms 20 years earlier, and Saul confirms that Tuttle has recently visited her as well.
