And be a Villain, Stout, Rex
21 Stout, Rex And be a Villain
New York Bantam Books 1975 Mass Market Paperback Near Fine 


"An audience participation murder. Madeline Fraser was an extremely beautiful world-renowned entertainer. Her show was so popular that when a guest on her program got publicly poisoned with the sponsor's own product, there were at least twenty million eyewitnesses. All Nero Wolfe had to do was to find out which witness was doubling as an assassin. The case was as 'show biz' as a chorus call, with enough gorgeous dolls on the scene to keep even Archie Goodwin occupied."; 6" - 7" Tall

And Be a Villain, Stout, Rex
22 Stout, Rex And Be a Villain
New York Viking Books 1948 Book Club (BCE/BOMC) Hardcover Good with no dust jacket 


Gray cloth with green lettering, 216 pp. Spine slightly cocked, some edge wear and chipping esp. to corners, some scratching to front board. Top edge of text block is wavy, likely from damp, pages show some tanning but text is clean and unmarked. A solid reading copy.

The incredibly brilliant Nero Wolfe is the orchid-growing gourmet whose sheer genius at deduction is always dead certain. But he takes a daring gamble when he agrees to make his $20,000 fee contingent on his solving a murder overheard by millions, but witnesses by none. . .because no one in the listening audience could see who slipped the cyanide to horse-racing tipster Cyril Orchard on a radio talk show. So while his confidential assistant Archie Goodwin tracks a suspect to Atlantic City, Wolfe plays a long shot at home that involves blackmail, betrayal and a beautiful woman; 7" - 9" Tall
