I liked this threesome of short stories. Because it was an ebook that I’d borrowed from the Toronto Public Library, I hadn’t realised when I began reading it that it was three stories in the one book, each showing a different side of Nero Wolfe. But the revelation that I was reading shorts not one long didn’t disappoint me. Rex Stout was a master of both formats.
I have to say it truly shocked me to read about Wolfe outside his house. And not only outside it but voluntarily travelling to the country too. I liked the change, and I enjoyed too the stories where Wolfe is in his usual environment. This is a good book for those in-between-task moments when you have only minutes to read.
