DEATH TIMES THREE
Now, with the aid of the Stout estate and Stout’s official biographer, John McAleer, Bantam Books is proud to publish this collection of three Nero Wolfe novellas. ASSAULT ON A BROWNSTONE, a novella featuring Wolfe in his most shocking confrontation with the law when his Thirty-fifth Street brownstone is invaded by Treasury officials. FRAME-UP FOR MURDER, concerning a famous fashion designer and a neatly stitched plot that weaves a deadly pattern of death. And BITTER END, a suspenseful story containing one of the nastiest incidents ever to occur at Wolfe’s dinner table.
