Just another GR refugee. Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.
This Rex Stout, Over My Dead Body, is from early in the Nero Wolfe series (I believe #7). It is 1939, and a girl from Yugoslavia visits Mr. Wolfe, claiming she is his adopted daughter (not seen by him since age 3), and needs his representation - her employer, who runs a fencing academy, claims she filched diamonds from the jacket pocket of one of his wealthy clients.
And then there are a couple of murders, foreign spies, and disappearing witnesses to enliven things. Not a boring moment in the book.If you like "golden age" mysteries (as I do), and haven't read Nero Wolfe, he's worth a try. The first is Fer-de-Lance, but most don't have to be read in order to make sense, I think. Stout wrote them from 1934 into the mid 1970s (he lived to be nearly 90).
