The third Nero Wolfe Omnibus, comprising two full length novels and a threesome of novelettes.
The Rubber Band - "A little bit of larceny, a maximum of murder, a modern-day old-fashioned Western shoot-out: These were the factors which plunged the imposing Nero Wolfe into a series of events which came close to culminating in his arrest. For the paragon of detectives had become entwined with a "rubber band" that reached across forty years and five thousand miles . . ."
In the Best Families - "X -- The most powerful man in the United States -- and the most dangerous. All of his operations were illegal and all of them were highly profitable. X didn't want anyone upsetting the golden apple cart. So when Wolfe realized his latest case led straight to X, he knew that if he wanted to live, he had to do the one thing he had never even contemplated -- run . . . And hide. . ."
Three Doors to Death - "Money is the motive, love the weapon, and murder the crime in three cases for the great detective and his ever-capable assistant . . . Mysteries which prove that even among the very wealthy, crime does not pay."
