Kings Full of Aces: A Nero Wolfe Omnibus (Too Many Cooks, Plot It Yourself, Triple Jeopardy), Stout, Rex
62 Stout, Rex Kings Full of Aces: A Nero Wolfe Omnibus (Too Many Cooks, Plot It Yourself, Triple Jeopardy)
New York Viking Press 1969 Book Club (BCE/BOMC) Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 


Spine slightly cocked, corners bumped, slight edge wear. Interior clean and unmarked. Jacket in new Brodart, spine sunned, minor edge wear and chipping. An attractive copy.

Three - in - one Nero Wolfe omnibus featuring two full-length novels and a threesome of short stories.
Too Many Cooks - "They're 'The Fifteen Masters.' These babies are famous. One of them cooks sausages that people fight duels over. They meet every five years on the home grounds of the oldest one of their number. Nero Wolfe is the guest of honor. They'll do a lot of cooking and eating and drinking, and tell each other a lot of lies, and elect three new members, and listen to Nero Wolfe make a speech -- and oh yeah, one of 'em's going to get killed."
Plot It Yourself - "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 best-selling 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 in the ABCs of murder."
Triple Jeopardy - "Could you sit in an office on West Thirty-Fifth Street and determine who among six people put a poison pellet into a pillbox that rested on a nightclub table three days before? Or what a policeman was carrying inside a folded newspaper when he entered a barber shop on the other side of town some ten hours earlier-before he was murdered? Or what sight was witnessed by a gibbering monkey in an overheated apartment two days ago?"; 7" - 9" Tall
