Black Orchids/The Silent Speaker: Nero Wolfe Mysteries by Rex Stout

A NERO WOLFE SPECIAL EDITIONTWO COMPLETE MYSTERIES IN ONE VOLUME Nero Wolfe towers over his rivals...he is an exceptional character creation. New YorkerA grand master of the form, Rex Stout is one of Americas greatest mystery writers, and his literary creation Nero Wolfe is one of fictions greatest detectives. In this double helping of classic Nero Wolfe mysteries, Stout presents the arrogant, gourmandizing, sedentary sleuth and his trusty man-about-town, Archie Goodwin, with a pair of delectable murders that no connoisseur of the whodunit could possibly resist. BLACK ORCHIDS Not much can get Wolfe to leave his comfortable brownstone, but the showing of a rare black orchid lures him to a flower show. Unfortunately, the much-anticipated event is soon overshadowed by a murder as daring as it is sudden. Its a case of weeding out a cunning killer who can turn up anywhereand Wolfe must do it quickly. Because a second case awaits his urgent attention: a society widow on a mailing list of poison-pen letters leading to a plot as dark as any orchid Wolfe has ever encountered. THE SILENT SPEAKER When a government power broker scheduled to speak before an influential group of millionaires turns up dead, Nero Wolfe grudgingly takes the caseeven as his own financial affairs teeter toward ruin. Soon a second victim is discovered, a missing stenographers tape causes a panic, and a dead man speaks, after a fashion. As the business world demands answers, the great detective baits a trap to net a killer worth his weight in gold.
