Over My Dead Body: This mystery from one of America's best-loved writers features one of the greatest fictional detectives of all time--Nero Wolfe. An orchid-growing, gourmandizing, demanding genius, Wolfe solves this case with the able assistance of his legman, Archie Goodwin, who narrates with his usual wry humor. When a fencing student ends up skewered through the heart, a Balkan beauty claiming to be Wolfe's daughter is accused of the crime. Wolfe and Archie thrust and parry into a tangle of identities and international intrigue. Is Wolfe's long-lost daughter a hot-blooded mistress of murder? Prisoner's Base: All the young lady had to do was stay alive and she'd inherit $8 million. When the cops find her strangled, Archie Goodwin, Nero Wolfe's wisecracking assistant, feels responsible for her death. He hires Wolfe to investigate. When two other women die the same way, both Archie and Wolfe know that it's time to find the key to this mystery.
