If Death Ever Slept

Rex Stout (Author)

Description

Murder lurks in the wings of the sprawling Fifth Avenue penthouse of multimillionaire Otis Jarrell, who has just retained the incomparable Nero Wolfe on a case of the utmost confidentiality. But even the master detective cannot prevent tragedy when it inevitably arrives wielding Jarrell's missing revolver. Soon a second victim meets his maker, and Wolfe must piece together the truth behind Jarrell's scandalously ill-behaved family. And for one member of that charmed circle--a two-time killer sleeping the fitful sleep of the guilty--it could prove a deadly awakening.

Introduction by Robert B. Parker

"It is always a treat to read a Nero Wolfe mystery. The man has entered our folklore."--The New York Times Book Review

A grand master of the form, Rex Stout is one of America's greatest mystery writers, and his literary creation Nero Wolfe is one of the greatest fictional detectives of all time. Together, Stout and Wolfe have entertained--and puzzled--millions of mystery fans around the world. Now, with his perambulatory man-about-town, Archie Goodwin, the arrogant, gourmandizing, sedentary sleuth is back in the original seventy-three cases of crime and detection written by the inimitable master himself, Rex Stout.
