When a group of publishers and writers hires Wolfe to solve a case of false plagiarism, it's time for the great detective to hit the books. Four unrelated accusers—including a down-and-out hack writer and a lady poet with a penchant for nude sunbathing—have been fleecing bestselling authors, claiming the authors have stolen their work and ingeniously planting evidence to back up their claims. But when punctuation gives way to puncture, Wolfe knows this is no simple case of extortion. This time he'll need all the critical skills at his disposal to close the book on a killer well versed on the ABCs of murder. Introduction by Susan Dunlap “It is always a treat to read a Nero Wolfe mystery. The man has entered our folklore.”—The New York Times Book Review   A grand master of the form, Rex Stout is one of America’s greatest mystery writers, and his literary creation Nero Wolfe is one of the greatest fictional detectives of all time. Together, Stout and Wolfe have entertained—and puzzled—millions of mystery fans around the world. Now, with his perambulatory man-about-town, Archie Goodwin, the arrogant, gourmandizing, sedentary sleuth is back in the original seventy-three cases of crime and detection written by the inimitable master himself, Rex Stout.

    " A new Nero Wolf book...a new word to learn... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bob | 2/8/2014

    " An enjoyable read, but certainly not the thriller that I typically have been reading. "

    " I haven't read Nero Wolfe for a long time, so it is good to see that all is still well in the brownstone: the orchids are thriving and the mystery is well plotted. :) Not related to this book, but I still cannot get over the fact that one of my favourite fictional characters of all times (Bertie Wooster) likes Nero Wolfe (another of my favourite fictional characters)! "

    " Nero Wolfe is hired to get to the bottom of a suspicious series of plagiarism suits . . . and soon the bodies start piling up. The first third of this novel is as absorbing and ingenious as any Wolfe I've read, but the development and denouement don't quite measure up to the beginning. Still, it is thoroughly entertaining. "

    " Another London read. This was my first ever Rex Stout, but I am well aware of the television series, and a fan of Archie Godwin. Much of the pleasure was derived from the habits of Nero Wolfe. "

    " Archie, Nero, perfection "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim | 10/19/2013

    " A clever, funny plot twister with humor and a complicated plot using lies and an absence of rersponse to solve the crime. Renews my interest in completing the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Harry | 7/25/2013

    " Good, tense. Would make a good TV episode. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mysterious | 7/18/2013

    " Nero Wolfe series - A group of authors and publishers hires Nero Wolfe to investigate a series of plagiarism claims. Wolfe, by his own admission, bungles the investigation so badly that three murders result. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue | 1/30/2013

    " Nero Wolfe is always great. The dated swanky NY world he describes is a marriage of Mad Men and Same Spade. This mystery deals with a bunch writers so I was apt to enjoy it and I did. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicki | 1/30/2013

    " Wolfe is approached by a committee of authors and publishers to find out who is behind the string of spurious claims of plagiarism. It gets serious fast when some of the people who claimed to have been plagiarized turn up murdered. Of course, by the end the murderer has been uncovered. "
