Death Times Three | [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. Finally, Wolfe has a run-in with the law after a mysterious old woman leaves a package at his brownstone that pits him against a cunning criminal and the U.S. government.

Publisher's Summary

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.

Stout fellow: listen to all of our Nero Wolfe mysteries, including classic radio programs!

    I focus on fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, science, history, politics and read a lot. I try to review everything I read.

    "Three Stories All Good, but Two were Repeats"

    This collection contains three stories, two of which appear in different versions in other collections. The stories are Bitter End, Frame-Up for Murder (a later version of Murder is No Joke found in And Four to Go), and Assault on a Brownstone (an early version of Counterfeit for Murder found in Homicide Trinity). These were good stories, but two were repeats for me. Counterfeit for Murder is one of my favorite Wolfe stories and is better than Assault on a Brownstone. Frame-Up for Murder is a bit better than Murder is No Joke. Bitter End was quite enjoyable. I generally prefer the novels to short stories, but these are among the better Stout shorts.

    Story
    "Woops!!! This is the book....."

    My previous review of "curtains for three" was meant for this book. I realized my error right after I submitted the review and do not know how to retract it. I did a marathon of Nero Wolfe books and got confused. Stories are duplicated in this book that are contained in "homicide Trinity". I hope the editor removes the other review.
