ARCHIE GOODWIN’S THE NAME

I’m the hard-hitting, good-looking sidekick of a beer-drinking, orchid-fancying giant genius of a detective named Nero Wolfe. Wolfe and I have worked on some pretty weird cases. This one I call —

THE RED BOX MURDERS

A beautiful model who should have been watching her figure never dreamed that one little piece of candy could kill her. But it did. And her untimely death put Nero Wolfe in line for the supreme insult of his career — another murder, right in his own home. He had to solve the case to save his pride. But the only clue was an odd red box — and, oddly enough, that had disappeared!

Inside Cover Text:

Orchids are his pride and passion; detection is his forte. He rarely moves his enormous person from his luxurious brownstone. He’s Rex Stout’s peerless solver of crimes

Nero Wolfe

Ably abetted by his quick-thinking, rugged cosleuth, Archie Goodwin, the noble detector of murderous motives and games of foul play takes on the case of a high-fashion corpse to

Save his reputation

in

The Red Box

A mind-boggling gem of mystery and detection!

Rear Cover Intro:

ARCHIE GOODWIN HERE…

My job is to see that Nero Wolfe has every opportunity to exercise his brain. That means dealing with crackpots and clients so fatso has time to drink beer, tend his orchids — and think. But when thirty frightened men called on Wolfe to solve their special problem, somebody had to do something more than just sit there. Because these guys were dying off too fast…

THE LEAGUE OF FRIGHTENED MEN

Thirty men live in terror while a hate twisted genius celebrates his murders in verse — and promises more to come. Nero Wolfe tackles his strangest case… for Wolfe knew who the killer was, and knew that his crimes could never be proved!

Inside Cover Text:

There was no mystery

Yet thirty people – bankers, doctors, taxi drivers, lawyers, professors, salesmen – had gathered in Nero Wolfe’s house to offer him a fantastic fee.

No proof of murder

Yet two men had died, another disappeared, and thirty more lived in terror of a man they had thought was their friend.

No doubt of guilt

Yet the man who bragged of killing and wrote verses promising death to all his enemies walked free – and Nero Wolfe could not stop him!
