A grand master of the form, Rex Stout is one of America’s greatest mystery writers, and his literary creation Nero Wolfe is one of fiction’s greatest detectives. Here, in Stout’s first two complete Wolfe mysteries, the arrogant, gourmandizing, sedentary sleuth and his trusty man-about-town Archie Goodwin solve their most baffling cases. Fer-de-lance The fer-de-lance is among the most deadly snakes known to man. When someone makes a present of one to Nero Wolfe, his partner, Archie Goodwin, suspects it means Wolfe is getting close to solving the devilishly clever murders of an immigrant and a college president. But this is a case with more twists than an angry rattler...and if Wolfe doesn’t handle it with extreme care, he’ll be the next one struck by a killer with poison in his heart. The League of Frightened Men Paul Chapin’s Harvard cronies never forgave themselves for the hazing prank that left their friend a cripple. Yet they believed that Paul himself had forgiven them—until a class reunion ends in death and a series of poems promising more of the same. Now this league of frightened men is desperate for Nero Wolfe’s help. But can even the great detective outwit a killer smart enough to commit an unseen murder…in plain sight?

Die fünfzehn besten Küchenmeister der Welt haben Nero Wolfe zu ihrer Tagung eingeladen. Als einer von ihnen sinnigerweise mit einem Tranchiermesser ermordet wird, erklärt der gewichtige Privatermittler sich bereit, den Mörder zu finden. Allerdings nur unter einer Bedingung: Er fordert als Honorar ein geheimes Würstchenrezept. Jeder weiß, dass zu viele Köche den Brei verderben, aber es muss ja nicht gleich zu Mord und Totschlag führen. Doch genau das steht auf dem Speiseplan bei einem Treffen der weltbesten Köche. Nero Wolfe ist als Ehrengast aus seinem New Yorker Stadthaus in ein schickes Spa gelockt worden, um die Eröffnungsrede zu halten. Dabei hätte er niemals erwartet, zwischen den exquisiten Gängen der Haute Cuisine zusammen mit seinem Assistenten Archie nach einem Mörder suchen zu müssen. Einem Mörder, der auch dem großen Privatermittler nur allzu gern sein letztes Abendmahl bereiten möchte.

Rex Stout war einer der erfolgreichsten amerikanischen Kriminalautoren des 20. Jahrhunderts. Seine literarische Schöpfung, der Privatdetektiv Nero Wolfe, zählt bis heute zu den berühmtesten Figuren des Genres. Zusammen mit seinem Assistenten Archie Goodwin hat der Ermittler mit einer Passion für Orchideenzucht und Gourmetküche weltweit Millionen Leser in den Bann gezogen. Die Neuübersetzung der Krimireihe bietet nun dem deutschen Leser erstmals die Möglichkeit, die Kriminalromane in ihrer vollständigen literarischen Qualität zu entdecken. Die reiche Exzentrikerin Rachel Bruner hat die Nase voll vom amerikanischen Geheimdienst. Sie kauft zehntausend Exemplare eines Enthüllungsbuchs und verschickt es landesweit. Klar, dass das Ärger gibt: Das FBI lässt sie auf Schritt und Tritt überwachen. In ihrer Not wendet sich die vornehme Dame an Nero Wolfe, den berühmtesten Privatermittler von New York. Doch wie soll der ihr helfen? Sein Gegenspieler ist immerhin kein Geringerer als J. Edgar Hoover. Ein Scheck über 100 000 Dollar überzeugt ihn, es zumindest zu versuchen. Da kommt ihm ein Mordfall an einem Journalisten sehr gelegen ...

Why did the late multimillionaire Noel Hawthorne leave his sisters, April, May, and June, a peach, a pear, and an apple? Why did he will the bulk of his considerable estate to a woman who was most definitely not his wife? Now Nero Wolfe, able, astute, and unscrupulous detective that he is, must get to the bottom of a will that’s left a whirlpool of menace . . . and a legacy of murder that’s about to be fulfilled. Introduction by Dean R. Koontz “It is always a treat to read a Nero Wolfe mystery. The man has entered our folklore.”—The New York Times Book Review A grand master of the form, Rex Stout is one of America’s greatest mystery writers, and his literary creation Nero Wolfe is one of the greatest fictional detectives of all time. Together, Stout and Wolfe have entertained—and puzzled—millions of mystery fans around the world. Now, with his perambulatory man-about-town, Archie Goodwin, the arrogant, gourmandizing, sedentary sleuth is back in the original seventy-three cases of crime and detection written by the inimitable master himself, Rex Stout.

A grand master of the form, Rex Stout is one of America’s greatest mystery writers, and his literary creation Nero Wolfe is one of fiction’s greatest detectives. Here, in Stout’s third and fourth complete Wolfe mysteries, the arrogant, gourmandizing, sedentary sleuth and his trusty man-about-town, Archie Goodwin, solve two of their most baffling cases. The Rubber Band What do a Wild West lynching and a respected English nobleman have in common? On the surface, absolutely nothing. But when a young woman hires his services, it becomes Nero Wolfe’s job to look deeper and find the connection. A forty-year-old pact, a five-thousand-mile search, and a million-dollar murder are all linked to an international scandal that could rebound on the great detective and his partner, Archie, with fatal abruptness. The Red Box Murder by chocolate? That’s the premise Nero Wolfe must operate from when a beautiful woman is poisoned after indulging in a box of candy. It’s a case that the great detective—no stranger himself to overindulgence—is loath to take for a variety of reasons, including that it may require that he leave his comfortable brownstone. But he and Archie are compelled by a mystery that mixes high fashion and low motives…and a killer who may have made the deadliest mistake.

Tales of murder and mayhem from one of the twentieth century's greatest mystery authors When Colonel Phillips begins his final game of golf, his greatest problem in life is that he has begun to slice the ball. Playing with his lawyer and nephews, Phillips fights his way back into the game and is on the verge of victory when he keels over. He clutches his chest, mumbles a few words, and is dead in minutes. The doctor has no doubt: The colonel was poisoned. Finding the culprit falls to the president of the golf club, amateur detective Canby Rankin, who will do whatever it takes to find the killer on the links. Written nearly a century ago, "The Last Drive" is now available for the first time in book form. Clever, charming, and absolutely baffling, it is the tale that inspired the first Nero Wolfe novel, Fer-de-Lance, and along with the other stories in this volume represents the early efforts of a modern genius.
