Summary
An invaluable sample of the early work of one of America's finest mystery writers. Decades before detective Nero Wolfe and his sidekick, Archie Goodwin, first struck fear into the hearts of Manhattan's criminals, Rex Stout wrote fiction for All-Stories Magazine. By the time the Wolfe series brought him fame, Stout had put his early work behind him, and made no effort to preserve it. At the time of his death, these early mysteries and suspense stories were thought to be lost forever, but deep in the Library of Congress lay copies of the original magazine
Summary
Collects, for the first time, seventeen of the author's best early short stories, including his first crime story "Secrets" and "Justice Ends at Home," which features a prototype of his famous creation, detective Nero Wolfe. Original
