As any herpetologist will tell you, the fer-de-lance is among the most dreaded snakes known to man. When someone makes a present of one to Nero Wolfe, Archie Goodwin knows he’s getting dreadfully close to solving the devilishly clever murders of an immigrant and a college president. As for Wolfe, he’s playing snake charmer in a case with more twists than an anaconda—whistling a seductive tune he hopes will catch a killer who’s still got poison in his heart.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Niffer | 4/28/2011

    " Rex Stout started off with a bang in his first Nero Wolfe book. Archie is perhaps a little rough around the edges in this book, but it is classic Nero Wolfe. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Tim | 4/16/2011

    " The first Nero Wolfe tale, though still quite good, suffers a little because the Wolfe and Archie Goodwin characterizations had yet to fully form. Very enjoyable, though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Amy | 2/11/2011

    " This is the first in the very prolific series, and I highly recommend every book! "
