Course Description

Rex Stout’s Nero Wolfe, the orchid-fancying, seventh-of-a-ton gourmand, is America’s most famous armchair detective, who solves murders along with his legman Archie Goodwin, certainly the best narrator in American fiction since Huckleberry Finn. The “King of Crimebusters” will investigate and discuss three of Rex Stout’s Nero Wolfe novels, one collection of his short stories, and a single story published in American Magazine, all designed to see how one detective can use his genius to identify murderers without leaving the comfort of his home.
