This entry in the Nero Wolfe series contains 3 novellas:
Poison a la Carte
Method Three for Murder
The Rodeo Murder
Of these 3, I liked the first one best (because it involved Fritz's cooking) though I think that the second one had the best mystery plot.
Archie and Wolfe are involved in three murders: roping cowboys on Park Avenue, A dead body in a taxi, and a poisoning at a dinner that Wolfe and Archie attended.
Enjoyable, but not up to the usual standards - only one of the three really was satisfying for me, "Method Three for Murder", wherein the story began with a woman driving up in a cab that was carrying a dead body.
I got this from the library, onto my Kindle (I love the 21st century so much!)
I remember liking Nero Wolfe mysteries better. I like the characters, but the mystery? eh. x 3

Death comes a-calling not once but three times in this murderous collection of cases from the files of Nero Wolfe, the world's greatest detective. First there is the exclusive dinner party where the guests are gourmets, arsenic is the appetizer, and the suspects are five of the most gorgeous gals in New York. Next, a wandering cab pulls up to Wolfe's door, containing a lady driver who doesn't belong . . . and a comely corpse with a knife between her ribs. And finally, a championships rodeo roars into town, featuring square-jawed cowboys, bright-eyed cowgirls, and a dead millionaire with a fancy lariat for a necktie. Introduction by Margaret Maron "It is always a treat to read a Nero Wolfe mystery. The man has entered our folklore."--The New York Times Book Review A grand master of the form, Rex Stout is one of America's greatest mystery writers, and his literary creation Nero Wolfe is one of the greatest fictional detectives of all time. Together, Stout and Wolfe have entertained--and puzzled--millions of mystery fans around the world. Now, with his perambulatory man-about-town, Archie Goodwin, the arrogant, gourmandizing, sedentary sleuth is back in the original seventy-three cases of crime and detection written by the inimitable master himself, Rex Stout.
