World War II has arrived, and U.S. Army intelligence wants Nero Wolfe urgently. But the arrogant, gourmandizing, sedentary sleuth refuses the call to duty. It takes his perambulatory, confidential assistant, Archie Goodwin, to titillate Wolfe’s taste for crime with two malevolent morsels: a corpse that won’t rest in peace and a sinister “accident” involving national security. So as Goodwin lays the bait on the wrong side of the law, Wolfe sets the traps to catch a pair of wily killers.

    " Nero Wolfe goes to war. This book is really two 90-page novellas, loosely linked. As with many of Stout's mysteries, the setting is more interesting than the details of the case. This one is set during the war, which adds substantially to the interest. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vicki | 5/23/2010

    " This is another one with two novellas, connected only by the fact that Archie is now in the Army, so he's not there to keep Wolfe in line. The mysteries are interesting, but I still like book-length ones better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ginny | 4/7/2010

    " I enjoyed all these books. This one was especially interesting because it takes place during WWII "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzanne | 8/29/2008

    " I enjoyed it but as it's not one of my Nero Wolfe favorites, I wouldn't recommend it to someone new to Stout. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bill | 6/15/2007

    " Notable for being a WW II period novel, with Archie as a major in the army and Wolfe in weight-training to join. Not the very best, but entertaining. Two long novellas. "
