After the Robinsons - a minister, his wife, and their 4 young sons - are shipwrecked on a desert island, they must adapt to their new environment, which includes exotic birds and animals, but none of the comforts they enjoyed in their native Switzerland. Without modern conveniences or even clocks and calendars, the Robinsons must use common sense to build a home, find food, and tame the island's wild animals.

There's no one or no thing the great detective Nero Wolfe won't take on if the price is right. That's something wealthy society widow Rachel Bruner is counting on when she writes him a check for a whopping one hundred grand. The oversize genius and his able assistant, Archie Goodwin, soon find out why the prize is so generous as they lock horns with the FBI. The highly trained G-men have a way with threats, tails, and bugs that could give even sedentary sleuth Nero Wolfe a run for his money.

It was a broadcaster's worst nightmare: dead air, in the true sense. A radio host's on-air guest is anything but live, dropping dead after chugging a sponsor's beverage.

this is impossible to follow and keep up with. too many clues and false clues. Everyone seems to be lying and devious. Hopeless to follow. The only book by Rex Stout to skip. Frustrating and a waste of MY time, but take your time and keep a score pad of who's who and what's what, it might be YOUR cup of tea.

A conservative academic, so far to the right that he thought Ronald Reagan was a pinko, Hale Markham rules Prescott University like an intellectual tyrant - right up until the morning he is found dead at the bottom of one of Prescott’s famously beautiful ravines. Every liberal on campus hated the crotchety old crank, but which one is responsible for giving Markham his final push to the right?

Back in Pickax, Jim Qwilleran expects to resume a quiet life, but the people and animals of Pickax have other ideas. A noisy cardinal wakes him every morning. Nosy neighbors drop by uninvited, and the Siamese misbehave, even sneezing on guests. As if they weren't bad enough, Qwill's long-time companion acts as though she is in love, with another man. But worst of all, Qwill finds a body in his apple orchard.

Ray Bradbury is a modern cultural treasure. His disarming simplicity of style underlies a towering body of work unmatched in metaphorical power by any other American storyteller. And here are 32 of his most famous tales - prime examples of the poignant and mysterious poetry that Bradbury uniquely uncovers in the depths of the human soul, the otherwordly portraits that spring from the canvas of one of the century's great men of imagination.
