This might be the first time we see Wolfe leaving the office for a client but I don't think it will happen much. The story is centering around young heiress Helen Frost who is about to become an adult as people around here start dying.

The Red Box (1937) (Nero Wolfe #4) by Rex Stout. Fashion models are supposed to watch what they eat. And candy is strictly verboten. So when Molly Lauck dies after eating a piece it is only fitting, in a macabre sort of way, that she died. Wolfe is contacted by the wealthy Mr. Frost and coerced into both looking into the death and actually leaving the brownstone to do so. A letter signed by the directors of the New York Orchid Show produces about the only type of pressure that could be applied to the big man.
Wolfe and Goodwin go to the fashion boutique where they interview the owner, Boyden McNair and several other people who work there including Mr. Frost’s cousin, Helen. McNair has come to the realization that the poisoned chocolate was meant for him. Helen manages to implicate herself in the murder. Mr. Frost wants to have Wolfe stop the investigation as do Helen’s relatives.
As if!
McNair seeks an audience with Wolfe at the brownstone and falls dead during the interview. He was poisoned. Prior to dying the doomed man informs Wolfe of his feelings of impending tragedy and tells the detective that, as he is the only person about him he trusts, McNair has made Wolfe the executor for his estate. An outraged Wolfe will now do anything in his power to discover the secrets that McNair was in the process of revealing. One item, a red leather box, becomes the crux of the investigation.
Wolfe also learns that Helen is the sole heir to the Frost family fortune when she turns 21, in a few days. And then there is the mystery of why Helen’s mother was not named as inheritor when her father died.
As in many mysteries, the past looms large in the story. And herein blackmail also plays a major role. And when a mysterious package arrives at Wolfe’s office, he gathers all the suspects together. As one they discuss what has happened in the past, the true relationships among the family, and the red leather box is produced giving a reason for the next sudden death.
A gripping, twisty tale and very fun. ( )

I’ve just finished the fourth book in the highly enjoyable Nero Wolfe series by Rex Stout. I loved catching up with both the eccentric Nero Wolfe and his stalwart assistant, Archie Fleming and even though I figured out both the motive and the murderer, The Red Box was a treat to read.

The biggest mystery just might lie in the title. Is the red box that is referred to in the title the large box of assorted chocolates, one of which was filled with poison and killed a beautiful young woman? Or was it the missing mystery container that belonged to the second victim, and held documents that would identify the murderer. Archie and Nero Wolfe have their hands full with this case as they come to the aid of a young heiress.

A lot of the fun of this book is how effortless the cantankerous genius and his rogue of an assistant run circles around both the suspects and the police. The Red Box is another entertaining entry into this witty and stylish series. ( )

Published in 1937. Nero Wolfe begins with the investigation of a poisoned young woman. Some interesting twists and turns! ( )

This is one of Stout's longer Nero Wolfe jaunts, and one of his earliest, number 4 on the list. So no Lily Rowan, for one. But the rest of the cast is present, and the rich are in trouble again. I got the gimmick pretty early, but it was fun to see it work itself out. ( )

Wolfe looked at our visitor with his eyes wide open - a sign, with him, either of indifference or of irritation. In this case it was obvious that he was irritated.
