"Rex Stout is one of America's greatest mystery writers, and his literary creation Nero Wolfe is one of fiction's greatest detectives. Here, the arrogant, gourmandizing, sedentary sleuth and his trusty man-about-town, Archie Goodwin, solve two of their most bizarre cases.
Some Buried Caesar : "A car accident strands Wolfe and Archie in the midst of an upstate family feud over $45,000 worth of prize bull - a feud that turns ugly when the beef in question is found pawing the mangled body of one of the family scions. WoIfe is certain that Hickory Caesar Grindon, the soon-to-be-beefsteak bull, isn't the murderer. But who among a veritable stampede of suspects - including a young woman [Lily Rowan] who's caught Archie's eye - turned the tables on Hickory's would-be butcher? It's crime that wins a blue ribbon for sheer audacity - and Nero Wolfe is the one detective audacious enough to solve it. "
The Golden Spiders : " Incredibly brilliant Nero Wolfe, lover of fine food and prize orchids, is famous for his genius at detection. He is also famous for his wealthy clients and extremely high fees. So why has Wolfe accepted a case for $4.30? And why have the last two people to hire him been ruthlessly murdered? While his confidential assistant, Archie Goodwin, dresses as a mortician to find out, Wolfe considers the cryptic clues: a gray Cadillac, a mysterious woman, and a pair of earrings - shaped like spiders dipped in gold. "
