Consider me a new fan of Rex Stout and his so-famous-I-can't-believe-I've-never-read-one-before Nero Wolfe books. Just as charming and fun as I've heard. The charm is all in the cranky, corpulent Nero Wolfe, a detective who hates to leave his house and can't abide the use of contact as a verb. This book satisfied my need for interesting details, a tidy plot, and swift pacing all in a nice mystery-formula package. Like Agatha Christie, I think I could read ten of these in a row.
