Three - in - one Nero Wolfe omnibus featuring two full-length novels and a threesome of short stories.
Fer-de-Lance: The very first Nero Wolfe novel. "A discarded newspaper, a young engineer's mysterious disappearance, and the death of a college president induce the great detective to wager $10,000 with the district attorney -- and help a young daughter prove her mother was no murderess."
Murder by the Book: "Clasping one of his precious orchids, the incredibly brilliant gourmet Nero Wolfe has a question to tax his daring deductive genius. Could a book be responsible for murder? Impossible. And yet those who made the mistake of knowing its contents were goners. The total so far: four victims. The only clues: A cryptic quotation from the Bible, and a list of names in a dead man's pocket. Together with his confidential assistant, Archie Goodwin, even Nero Wolfe was stumped until a somewhat wilted blonde passionflower stumbled onto the scene. . ."
Three Witness : "Three witnesses hold all the clues in three crimes of passion that have even Nero Wolfe guessing to the very end. Did the dead millionaire who suddenly came back to life - only to end up dead again - write his own death warrant years before? Will the black Labrador retriever who follows Archie home prove that man's best friend is a killer's worst enemy? And in a case involving a telephone answering service with three very untalkative operators, could the great detective himself be the witness who will save an innocent man from the chair?"; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall
