I've finished the first story, Too Many Clients and found it consistantly well written start to finish. My wife and I were big fans of the A&E Nero Wolfe series and even though I had seen this story performed I was still enthralled. I am currently about a third of the way through Might as Well Be Dead and it is just as engaging.

Too Many Clients was recommended on the Classic Mysteries podcast so I sought out the book. The other two novels included in this omnibus are just as much fun to read. Always good to visit Nero, Archie and the gang in their portion of New York City.

Rex Stout is a fantastic mystery. His characters are meticulously drawn and brilliantly conceived. Each mystery is fascinating--the reader is bound to learn a great deal about history, trivia, culture, and society all while enjoying the story. I love a book that teaches while it entertains.

Rex Todhunter Stout (December 1, 1886 – October 27, 1975) was an American crime writer, best known as the creator of the larger-than-life fictional detective Nero Wolfe, described by reviewer Will Cuppy as "that Falstaff of detectives." Wolfe's assistant Archie Goodwin recorded the cases of the detective genius from 1934 (Fer-de-Lance) to 1975 (A Family Affair).
