the Man Who Came to Blackmail — and hit the hay, for keeps!

AND ONE MASTER DETECTIVE

Nero Wolfe —

the first time he’s left home in years — and he’s pitch-forked into triple murder!

REX STOUT was born in Indiana in 1886 and raised by parents whose library consisted of some twelve hundred books. By the time he was ten he had read all twelve hundred, providing him with an inexhaustible background for his future writing career. Mr. Stout set up a school banking system which was installed in four hundred cities in the United States. In 1934 his first Nero Wolfe novel FER-DE-LANCE, marked the beginning of one of the great character creations of modern crime fiction. Mr. Stout is the author of fifty four books published in thirty-six years.

Inside Cover Text:

Who

killed the Foolproof Bull,

The Foolish Young Man,

and the Foolhardy Blackmailer?

It was the toughest question that Nero Wolfe ever tried to answer. for there were three corpses dotting the countryside – and not one shred of evidence to point to the killer! Everyone with the slightest motive could be positively ruled out … and, to make matters worse, the cops had pinned it on Wolfe’s right-hand man Archie – and jailed him!

Watch the incredibly corpulent detective bull his way through to the solution of his toughest case in SOME BURIED CAESAR.

“Rex Stout and Nero Wolfe make a combination that is hard to beat.” – The New York Times
