Some Buried Caesar

An automobile breakdown strands Nero Wolfe and Archie in the middle of a private pasture – and a family feud over a prize bull. A restaurateur’s plan to buy the stud and barbecue it as a publicity stunt may be in poor taste, but it isn’t a crime … until Hickory Caesar Grindon, the soon-to-be-beefsteak bull, is found pawing the remains of a family scion. Wolfe is sure the idea that Caesar is the murderer is, well, pure bull. Now the great detective is on the horns of a dilemma as a veritable stampede of suspects – including a young lady Archie has his eye on – conceals a special breed of killer who wins a blue ribbon for sheer audacity.

THREE DEAD BODIES

Hickory Caesar Grindon —

a champion bull – and a $45,000 main course at a mammoth barbecue

Clyde Osgood —

a wild young man who bet his life that no one would be eating Caesarburgers

Bronson —

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

Some Buried Caesar

Rear Cover Intro:

MY NAME IS ARCHIE GOODWIN

Most people know me as the tough but lovable sidekick
of a rather heavyset, beer-drinking, orchid-fancying, uncanny master of
deduction named Nero Wolfe. Wolfe and I have worked some pretty wild cases.
This one I call —

$45,000 WORTH OF BULL

If Thomas Pratt, the millionaire restaurateur,
had his heart set on barbecuing Caesar Hickory Grindon, a $45,000 champion
bull, that was okay with me. I didn’t even really mind guarding the champ
in a pitch-black cow pasture at midnight. But things got complicated when
an angry young man named Clyde Osgood — the jilted lover of Pratt’s sexiest
houseguest — bet $10,000 that the barbecue would never take place.

He was right. Everyone kind of lost his appetite
when the main dish was discovered pawing at Clyde’s mangled body. It looked
to me like Caesar was the culprit. Unfortunately, some other people had
me pegged as patsy. But — as usual — my boss, the super sleuth, had his
own ideas…

Inside Cover Text:
