Follow the world's greatest detective, Nero Wolfe, on a trail of money, mayhem, and murder in three cases of capital crime. The trail of bodies begins with the death of a self-made millionaire, a fortune in uranium, and the perfect weapon . . . which no longer exists. Then it's on to a rural lodge to teach two arrogant billionaires, a foreign ambassador, and a famous diplomat that murder is bad for business. Finally, it's a case of politics making the strangest of bedfellows when a fake millionaire becomes a real corpse in the state capital and the evidence has Nero and Archie in the hot seat.   Introduction by Sharyn McCrumb   "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.… (mere)

The bad thing with mystery short stories is that the author doesn't have enough time to insert red herrings so there are too few candidates for the reader to guess between. ( )

This is one of the first Wolfe threesomes I read, and I still like it, though I suspect the title sees too gruesome nowadays.A Window for Death is a very classic type of story --a long lost brother comes home with a fortune, and is murdered --it develops that he had been tried and acquitted for the murder of his own father,and had come back to reveal the real killer --but Wolfe has to do it instead. Immune to Murder involves a high-powered diplomatic party catching trout for Wolfe to cook --but one of the fishermen ends up dead. The trout provide the crucial clue. The third story is my favorite -- Too Many Detectives --Wolfe and Archie and a batch of other detectives including Stout's female detective Dol Bonner (originally on her own in The Hand in the Glove) are called to testify about wiretapping, and the witness they are supposed to confront is murdered, but all the detectives together combine to solve the case. I regret we do not see more of Dol Bonner in other stories. Her assistant, Sally Colt, reappears briefly n The Father Hunt. ( )

Three for the Chair is another trio of Nero Wolfe novellas by Rex Stout, including "A Window for Death," about a uranium miner who attempts to reconcile with his family but is murdered during his attempt; "Immune to Murder," one of the rare tales where Nero Wolfe leaves his home, in this case to travel to the Adirondacks in order to prepare a special meal for a visiting ambassador, only to find himself detained and inconvenienced when one of the party is killed; and "Too Many Detectives," wherein Wolfe is actually arrested briefly during the course of an investigation by the district attorney into possible illegal wiretapping activities amongst a group of private detectives. As always with these collections, the stories are short, concise and minor, but also as always, Wolfe and Archie Goodwin are remarkable characters to follow, and it's a great deal of fun to try to beat the great detective to a solution. Recommended! ( )

Nero Wolfe, behind his desk, sat glaring at the caller in the red leather chair. ("A Window for Death")
I stood with my arms folded, glaring down at Nero Wolfe, who had his 278 pounds planted in a massive armchair which was made of heavy pine slats, with thick rainbow rugs draped over the back and on the seat for a cushion. ("Immune to Murder")
I am against female detectives on principle. ("Too Many Detectives")
