Nero Wolfe and his assistant, Archie Goodwin, star in these four gems.

In “The Christmas Party” Archie and his fiancée attend an office party where Wolfe condescends to uncharacteristic theatrics. His dramatic technique is good, but it isn’t enough to clear him from suspicion of murder. The “Easter Parade” tempts Wolfe to commit petty larceny for an orchid. Though that crime goes unpunished, the inevitable murder doesn’t. “A Fourth of July Picnic” has Wolfe scheduled for an unprecedented appearance as orator. But his day in the sun is rained out—by murder. The last selection, “Murder Is No Joke” is a whodunit in a couturier’s salon, where a murderer is dressed to kill—and kill again.

    " Yet another great collection of Nero Wolfe stories. "Christmas Party" is one of my very favorites--I read it every holiday season. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dory | 9/28/2009

    " A good opportunity to read a short story (or 4 of them!) if you'd like to read on your commute without committing to a novel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kent | 9/12/2009

    " First Nero Wolfe I've read - recommended by Jacqueline

    There were four short stories in this book - somewhat interesting, but not suspenseful. I'll go for a full Nero Wolfe novel next, but not right away. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 3/19/2009

    " Zowie! I am definitely going to read more Nero Wolfe mysteries. The relationship between Wolfe (brilliant orchid-cultivating gourmand) and his live-in right hand man Archie Goodwin actually keeps you turning the pages more than the mystery being cleverly solved. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bill | 10/8/2008

    "
    An entertaining group of four Nero Wolfe short stories, three with holiday themes. "
