NERO WOLFE’S ADDRESS
WAS IN THE DEAD MAN’S POCKET-
AND MURDER CAME TO CALL

When it was all over, Wolfe had a bullet in the arm-and the killer had one in the heart.

But before the shoot-out in the fat detective’s office, Wolfe and Archie had to break the mystery of a “Rubber Band” that stretched across forty years and five thousand miles-a mystery made up of a lynching, multiple murder, blackmail, and one of Nero Wolfe’s most dangerous-and lovely-clients!

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.
