Black Orchids
Cordially Invited To Meet Death

Rear Cover Intro:


There were only three black orchids in the world — and they belonged to someone else. To get those orchids, Wolfe would do anything: conceal murder evidence… hide witnesses… lead the police on a wild-goose chase… and lock himself in a lethal gas chamber with a killer’s hand on the valve!

The reader is also CORDIALLY INVITED TO MEET DEATH as Archie Goodwin trips over an alligator and lands in the middle of murder — “Here are two Nero Wolfe stories for the price of one, and if that isn’t a bargain you never saw one!” -THE NEW YORK TIMES
