About the Author

Author Rex Stout was born on December 1, 1886. A child prodigy with a gift for mathematics, Stout drifted as he became an adult, holding odd jobs in many places---cook, cabinetmaker, bellhop, hotel manager, salesman, bookkeeper, and even a guide in a pueblo. But his true talent lay in storytelling; mostrar mais he sold his first story, about William Howard Taft, in 1912. His most famous creation is Nero Wolfe, a 286-pound detective genius who, with sidekick Archie Goodwin, can often solve a case without leaving his room. It is the way in which the puzzle is solved that intrigues Nero Wolfe, who is much like Sherlock Holmes in his ability to use deductive reasoning. More than 60 million copies (in 24 languages) of Stout's books have been sold. Stout writes quickly, drawing upon a lifetime of impressions. He neither uses an outline nor revises; he lets his characters take over as the story develops. The classy, erudite Nero Wolfe presents for readers an alternative to the hard-boiled branch of the genre. He died on October 27, 1975 (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

Some Buried Caesar - Spoilers em The Black Orchid (A Nero Wolfe Group) (Março 2021)

Críticas

Na Nova York de 1936, uma jovem modelo abre uma caixa vermelha e morre ao ingerir um bombom envenenado: seria ela o alvo da cilada ou apenas a vítima acidental de uma trama envolvendo seu patrão, o magnata Boyd McNair? É o que Nero Wolfe deverá elucidar, sem sair de casa, utilizando sua prodigiosa inteligência dedutiva e os préstimos do fiel assistente Archie, que enfrenta vários perigos para recolher indícios que ajudem o genial detetive a armar sua própria rede.
