Over My Dead Body

Quote from Over My Dead Body

Over My Dead Body – While talking to Mr. Donald Barrett of Barrett & De Russy in his office, Wolfe remarks “You’re suffering from an occupational disease. When an international financier is confronted by a holdup man with a gun, he automatically hands over not only his money and jewelry but also his shirt and pants, because it doesn’t occur to him that a robber might draw the line somewhere.”

Ain’t that the truth!

THE DUBIOUS DAUGHTER

When the Balkan princess batted her black lashes and begged Wolfe for help, her plea almost melted me on the spot. Naturally I was disturbed that our future together would be cut short by Wolfe’s refusal to take her case. According to the princess, a friend of hers — Neya Tormic — was in a heap of trouble and only zee great Nero Wolfe could assist her. Why Wolfe? Simple, the princess declared, after all Neya was Nero’s daughter…

That was the first piece of a puzzle that involved a lot more than paternity charges — diamonds, international intrigue, and murder most foul soon complicated the game!
